“New York” (Live On Letterman) (Video)

    There’s a song on Snow Patrol’s sixth studio album, Fallen Empires, which is titled “New York.” So that was the natural choice of song to play when the band appeared on David Letterman’s show in the city last night, with the Glasgow-based band delivering another earnest slice of AOR. This song is a straight piano ballad, allowing singer Gary Lightbody a chance to show off his voice to a stripped down accompaniment. This isn’t likely to shake off any of those Coldplay comparisons the group has garnered since choosing to go down this route, but it’s hardly likely to bother them as Fallen Empires is doing great business in the U.K.. Check out “New York” in the clip below. [via The Audio Perv]
