Jenny Lewis released a new album, On the Line, back in March via Warner Records (stream it here). Last night she stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform the album’s “Wasted Youth.” A small string section joined Lewis and she and her band were all clad in matching outfits, with blue sweatshirts featuring a skull on them. Plus there were red plastic telephones on her piano and at one point balloons fell on the band. Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Previously Lewis shared On the Line‘s first single, “Red Bull & Hennessy,” which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then she shared another song from the album, “Heads Gonna Roll,” which was posted to YouTube via a largely static image of her on a horse in a sparkly Elvis-in-Vegas type outfit. The song featured Ringo Starr on drums and Don Was on bass and was also one of our Songs of the Week. That was followed by “Wasted Youth,” which also made our Songs of the Week list.

Then there was On the Line Online, a live-streamed telethon/variety show to promote the album and to raise money for Los Angeles’ The Downtown Women’s Center. The three-and-a-half-hour thing was co-hosted by comedians Tim Heidecker and Vanessa Bayer (of Saturday Night Live) and featured a slew of special guests, including Jeff Goldblum, St. Vincent, Beck, Danielle Haim, Mac DeMarco, Jim James, Jason Schwartzman, Nikki Lane, David Arquette, King Tuff, Natasha Leggero, and more (watch it here). Following that she released a video for “Red Bull & Hennessy” made up of behind-the-scenes footage of the telethon.

On the Line is Lewis’ first solo album in five years, since 2014’s The Voyager. Lewis recorded On the Line at Capitol Records’ Studio B with an impressive backing band featuring Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner, Ringo Starr, and others.

Lewis also previously stopped by the Chris Thile-hosted public radio show Live From Here to perform “Red Bull & Hennessy.” She also stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform “Red Bull & Hennessy” and “Wasted Youth.”
