David Letterman gave Joanna Newsom an unnerving intro on his show last night (Dec. 14), describing her stage set as looking like “Sarah Palin’s den” and asking her if she did her own taxidermy. Sadly, we didn’t find out the answer to the latter, and Newsom seemed unfazed by Letterman’s cracks, ultimately delivering an extended and profoundly moving version of the brief opener to the second disc of Have One On Me. Dave makes up for it in the end by describing the song as “beautiful,” but I think it’s safe to say he won’t be rushing out to purchase a copy of the album any time soon.
