Grace Potter invited Jackson Browne, Marcus King, and Lucius to join her on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday night, where the group delivered a powerful rendition of “Eachother” as part of the program’s “#PlayAtHome” music series.
Her newest song, Potter wrote “Eachother” amid the coronavirus health crisis that has caused billions across the globe to adhere to social distancing and self-quarantine guidelines. Much like the song’s debut back in March, the Colbert performance began with Potter singing alone and strumming her acoustic guitar. “Streets are all empty / Shelves are all bare / The world is holding its breath / Like we’re running out of air,” she sang, before the heartbeat of a kickdrum ushered in the full band sound present on the rest of the song.
Marcus King then made his presence known with a screaming Fender Stratocaster before putting his vocals to work on the second verse, which saw harmonies from Lucius’ Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. After Jackson Browne took over lead vocals on the third verse, the final chorus featured a five-part harmony and led to Potter ending the song alone with the line, “And for now, that’s enough.”
Watch the group of musicians perform “Eachother” from their separate quarantine locations in the video below.
