Snow Patrol 'New York' on 'Letterman'

Scottish band perform latest single from 'Fallen Empires'

Rolling Stone

Snow Patrol returned to the Late Show with David Letterman last night to perform "New York," a number from the Scottish band's latest album, Fallen Empires. Though the first two singles from that record have been rooted in rock and dance beats, this song is a stark, heartbreaking ballad that pares the band down to just singer Gary Lightbody's voice and plaintive piano accompaniment.
