Joined by his backing band, Tweedy dons a darkened, desolate stage to perform the cheerful song about the best thing in his life—love. The song’s lyrics run with the album’s central theme, Love Is The King. With Tweedy’s words serving as the main focus, the drums come in ever so lightly so that the delicate acoustic guitar can be a focal point in the mix. Then, out of nowhere, an electric guitar solo comes roaring in as the song comes to a close.Tweedy also stuck around for an interview with Colbert, taped remotely. During their extended chat—which went on for over 14 minutes—they touch on Tweedy’s new book, How To Write One Song. The instructional literature gives readers the benefit of Tweedy’s decades of songwriting practice, and teaches just what the title suggests. As an example, Tweedy took out his guitar and played a brief song with lyrics inspired by Colbert’s October 22nd monologue about the final debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.Watch Jeff Tweedy perform “Guess Again” on Colbert, as well as a brief song written about Stephen’s monologue.Jeff Tweedy – “Guess Again”[Video: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert]Jeff Tweedy Debuts A New Song Inspired By One Of Stephen Colbert’s Monologues – EXTENDED INTERVIEW[Video: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert]last_img
