The Shins 'Simple Song' on 'Letterman'

Portland band performs 'Simple Song'

Rolling Stone

The Shins returned to Late Show with David Letterman last night to play "Simple Song," the delightful lead single from their new album, Port of Morrow. Though the band isn't known for their rockers, the performance is nice and punchy, with frontman James Mercer coming off as more confident and assertive than ever before.
