Watch Parquet Courts perform new single ‘Watching Strangers Smile’

The group performed the track on The Ellen Degeneres Show.

Following the release of ‘Sympathy For Life’ last year, Parquet Courts went on The Ellen Degeneres Show to premiere new single ‘Watching Strangers Smile’. “Interestingly enough, this song is the b-side to the Black Widow Spider single, which was released only in Japan via Big Love Records,” says A. Savage. “The music was recorded during the sessions for ‘Sympathy for Life’, but it was left unfinished. I recorded the vocals on my own to sort of keep from going stir crazy that first lockdown summer. Apologies to my neighbors for the long afternoon spent screaming these vocals in my bedroom.” Check out the performance below, and revisit our chat with Parquet Courts from last year here.
