New Zealand singer/songwriter Aldous Harding released a new album, Designer, back in April via 4AD. Last night she stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to make her U.S. late night TV debut and perform the album's "The Barrel." She was wearing a stylish hat and a press release points out she was clad in a crimson Valentino gown. Watch the performance below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Read our interview with Aldous Harding on Designer.

Previously Harding shared a strange video for Designer's first single, "Barrel" (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then she shared another song from the album, opening track "Fixture Picture," also via a video for the song. Harding co-directed the striking video with Jack Whiteley, which was filmed on the Cliffs of Dover in England and featured Harding dressed in bright red, while her all-male backing band are all clad in black, sometimes with their faces covered. "Fixture Picture" was also one of our Songs of the Week. When the album was released title track "Designer" was also one of our Songs of the Week.

Designer is the follow-up to 2017's Party. As with that album, John Parish produces again. The album also features Huw Evans (H. Hawkline), Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), drummer Gwion Llewelyn, and violinist Clare Mactaggart.
