Since February 2015, the band has appeared on the iconic show for a total of 13 times, and even stuck around to bring “Legends on Letterman” series to a close with an hour-long set broadcasted live on the network’s official website.
Frontman Dave Matthews said that it was “awesome” to be given a chance to participate on the show, revealing that the band’s first TV appearance ever took place on the Letterman show two decades ago.
The band delivered a mix of their staple tunes such as “Digging a Ditch,” “Don’t Drink the Water,” “Grey Street,” as well as the aforementioned “Black and Bluebird.”
As for the new song, what we have at our hands is a mellow ditty rich with brass fills, neat guitar chords and Mr. Dave’s distinctive voice. The fact that the group opted to debut a new song on the show speaks for itself about how much the DMB crew respects Mr. Letterman.
