  • Last night during a performance in Melbourne, Australia FKA Twigs debuted a brand new track. Thanks to Dazed Digital you can watch her performance of the song, reportedly titled “Figure 8,” below. [Pitchfork]

  • Death Cab for Cutie stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to promote their upcoming album Kintsuji (out on March 31). This was their first TV appearance with new band members Zac Rae and Dave Depper. Check out their performance of the single “Black Sun” below. [CoS]

  • Indie outfit Hundred Waters will release The Moon Rang Like a Bell Remixed, a remix edition of last year’s album, on February 17. The album features a simple piano version of their track “Show Me Love” which is similar to the ethereal version in the video they’ve shared today. [Stereogum]

  • Covers can be a tricky business. They’re either amazing or terrible and they rarely fall into the middle ground, until today. During his performance at BBC Radio 1, Hozier decided to cover the Ariana Grande & Iggy Azalea hit “Problem.” It’s definitely an odd choice, but Hozier somehow makes it work. [Stereogum]
