Watch Tobias Jesso Jr. Play the Beatles-esque ‘Crocodile Tears’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’
Tobias Jesso Jr. hasn't been on U.S. late night television since his performance of "Without You" on Conan, accompanied by Haim's Danielle Haim, in March, but he made his triumphant return to the airwaves last night (Aug. 24) when he was the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and performed "Crocodile Tears" and "Hollywood." For both songs, he was backed by the band Duk. Check out videos of last night's performance below.
Jesso has about a month of anticipation ahead of him, as his 2015 debut album Goon is nominated for the 2015 Polaris Prize, an award for the best album by a Canadian artist. Goon is included on the 10-album shortlist alongside albums by Drake, Caribou, Viet Cong, Alvvays and others.
Jesso will get back on the road in late September for a tour lasting much of the rest of 2015. Check out his complete upcoming schedule at his website.
