NPR Music has released Sheryl Crow’s 35-minute Tiny Desk set, which she recorded back in October as part of the non-profit’s ticketed Tiny Desk Fest concert series.
Crowkicked things off with her 1994 breakout hit, “All I Wanna Do,” before segueing into “A Change Would Do You Good,” from her self-titled 1997 sophomore album. Crow then paused for a bit to chat with the audience about something she’d recently heard on the radio.
“I heard a big thing on NPR about the shrinking of the attention span and how now, with pop songs, everything has like six seconds before you gotta change it, because the kids swipe over,” Crow said. “I’m just gonna tell you right now: We’re dinosaurs… We’re the songwriters that are here to tax your attention span.”
Crow then jumped forward to perform cuts from her latest and final album, Threads. She played solo versions of “Prove You Wrong,” “Tell Me When it’s Over” and “Cross Creek Road,” before wrapping things up with her 1996 international hit, “If it Makes You Happy.”
Besides Crow, NPR’s inaugural Tiny Desk Fest also featured performances from Wale, Megan Thee Stallion and Raphael Saadiq. Watch Crow’s Tiny Desk performance below:
