On last night's Late Late Show, guitarist Ryan Adams came on to perform "Gimme Something Good," the opening track from his 2014 self-titled release. Joining him for the song was record producer and bassist Don Was. You can watch their performance above.
The performance happened on the same day that it was announced Adams and Mandy Moore filed for a divorce. US Weekly has a statement from Moore's rep that reads, "Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost 6 years... It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time."
In context, you can understand why this performance is so much heavier than other performances we've seen of the song. With Ryan Adams on acoustic guitar and Don Was on upright bass, the two turn the original into a model of haunting beauty. Ryan gently strums the song while Don lays the bass foundation. The vocals highlight the song, as Ryan delivers them with emotion and determination.
"Gimme Something Good" is the first track from Ryan Adams' 2014 self-titled release, which you can listen to and read our review here on Zumic.
