On Tuesday night, Jack Johnson stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The show’s host, Stephen Colbert, was so elated by the experience that he joined in on the first two songs of the musical guest’s performance before leaving Johnson to perform a third song with his band, Bahamas.“Folks, this is the best job in the world because I got what I wanted,” Colbert stated before joining the singer/songwriter on the title track from his 2008 album, Sleep Through The Static, which had never been performed on television. The two traded sat on a couple of stools surrounded by Johnson’s Band as they traded verses before impressively joining up for the chorus. From there, Colbert stuck around for a second duet on a cover of “I Love You and Buddha Too”, a 2008 Mason Jennings track to which Johnson contributed vocals. Halfway through the performance, Colbert excused himself and left Johnson and his band to finish off the song. The highlight of the evening came next, as Jack Johnson performed “Big Sur” from his 2017 album, All the Light Above It Too.You can watch all three of the performances below:Jack Johnson & Stephen Colbert – “Sleep Through The Static”Jack Johnson & Stephen Colbert – “I Love You And Buddha Too”Jack Johnson w/ Bahamas – “Big Sur”[Videos: The Late Show With Stephen Colbert]Earlier in the week, David Byrne took the stage at the iconic Ed Sullivan Theater for an incredible, beautifully choreographed Late Show performance of “Everybody’s Coming To My House” with an identically-dressed ensemble that moved throughout the theatre during the performance–often around Stephen Colbert himself, who played along with amusement. Colbert also chatted with Byrne about the theatrics of modern-day politics and spoke about the time in college when he skipped Talking Heads‘ Stop Making Sense tour to write a term paper.
