Tuned In: Esperanza Spalding Plays Her “Radio Song” On Letterman

by (@kat_george)

Esperanza Spalding played live on The Late Show With David Letterman last night, and blew us away with her amazing fusion sound. Somewhere between jazz and pop, Spalding’s track “Radio Song” is a contradiction, frenetic in it’s influences and unpredictability but somehow still completely soothing and soulful. We half expected to see Mark Ronson playing guitar behind her, and we can already see the success of a future collaboration (hint hint). “Radio Song” is from Spalding’s new album Radio Music Society, and it’s the kind of track that’s going to be perfect for sunset cocktails and driving with the top down when the sun is shining.
