This week saw the lovely ladies of Lucius grace The Colbert Report stage, lending their vocals to Jeff Tweedy and son for a rendition of “Low Key”. Watch below.

This guest appearance marks a continuing relationship between the two groups, with the girls having contributed to numerous tracks on Tweedy’s new album “Sukierae” (including the aforementioned “Low Key”), in addition to previous on-stage collaborations at Newport Folk Festival, and a special guest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon performing “High as Hello”, another Lucius-featuring track from the new album.

Still want more? Following The Colbert Report, Lucius also joined Tweedy for their special album release show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the entire performance from which was live-streamed, and has now been archived for your viewing pleasure.

Stream Tweedy’s new album “Sukierae” on Spotify now:

Lucius took Newport Folk Festival by storm this weekend, sharing the stage with Mavis Staples, Tweedy, Deer Tick, along with their own stellar performance (which landed them on Billboard’s “10 Best Performances of Newport Folk Festival” run-down)

Newport Folk Festival was actually the second time we’ve seen Lucius collaborate with Tweedy (aka Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and his son, Spencer) in the past week, with the girls also appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to provide back-up to Tweedy’s “High as Hello”.

And, as if the line-up of legends already mentioned weren’t quite enough, JD McPherson today shared an intimate collaborative performance of Buddy Holly’s “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore”, featuring JD alongside the likes of Lucius, and Jimmy Sutton.
