St. Vincent Gets ‘Down’ On ‘Colbert’ Look + Listen

Appearing on The Late Show alongside Louis Cato and the talk show’s house band, St. Vincent with her electric guitar performed a rambunctious version of last year’s single “Down.”

Appearing on St. Vincent’s 2021 LP Daddy’s Home, “Down” was released last May after which the musician starred in the film The Nowhere Inn, where she portrayed a touring musician who’s the subject of a documentary filmmaker (played by Clark’s friend and collaborator Carrie Brownstein). 

Stepping in for Jon Batiste for a week in July, St. Vincent (born Anne Erin Clark) filled in as house band leader on The Late Show and during one of the appearances, the Texas-born musician publicly urged the Dallas Cowboys to book her to perform the National Anthem for a future game. After host Stephen Colbert asked “Have you ever sung the National Anthem at a Cowboys game?” the singer replied, “No, but I have been trying to… They have never taken me up on my offer.”

Earlier this summer, St. Vincent covered Lipps Inc.’s disco classic, “Funky Town,” for the soundtrack for Minions: The Rise of Gru.
