Chris Thile recently relaunched Garrison Keillor’s old NPR show A Prairie Home Companion, and in recent weeks, the show has hosted performances from people like Laura Marling, Ryan Adams, and Jenny Lewis. On the most recent episode, Aimee Mann came through and sang a subdued version of “Goose Snow Cone,” the gorgeous song that opens up her excellent new album Mental Illness. Jonathan Coulton, a frequent Mann collaborator, backed her up. You can watch the performance below.
Mental Illness is out now on Mann’s own SuperEgo Records. You can hear the entire A Prairie Home Companion episode here.
