If you were watching The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, you might have expected Taylor Swift to play a song or two, since she was his guest. But Fallon brought another singer/songwriter aboard for a rocking performance — Ryan Adams. Adams performed new song “Gimme Something Good,” which is the first single from his upcoming self-titled 14th album — out September 9 via Pax Am.
This performance is the first with Adams’ new band, which he said is called The Shining. We’re not sure if Ryan Adams and The Shining has the same ring to it as Ryan Adams and The Cardinals, but Adams has a way of doing whatever he wants, so it’s not like we’re going to stand in his way. In any case, watch the Ryan Adams Fallon performance below.
