On the telly: Alabama Shakes perform b-side ‘Joe’ on Colbert

Alabama Shakes perform b-side ‘Joe’ on Colbert

Track appears on an extended edition of ‘Sound & Color’.

Last night (28th October), Alabama Shakes performed on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Instead of sticking to their guns and referring to a track from this year’s ‘Sound & Color’, they played ‘Joe’, a gorgeous, all-enveloping b-side from the record’s sessions. It appears on the Japanese version of the 2015 LP.

Alongside the Colbert performance, Alabama Shakes are sharing a live version of ‘Joe’ on Spotify.
