    Watch: Punch Brothers Perform 60-Second Take on "New York City" for MTV Hive's Inaugural "Stop/Watch"

    Punch Brothers, who recently announced the first leg of their North American fall tour, have helped launch a new segment on MTV Hive called Stop/Watch, in which artists are challenged to complete a song in 60 seconds. In the inaugural session, Punch Brothers perform an abbreviated take on their song "New York City," a tune off their latest Nonesuch release, Who's Feeling Young Now?, with lyrics by Chris Thile and Josh Ritter. Watch the performance below.

    “'Silky' isn’t a term often used to describe bluegrass yet it’s applicable for Punch Brothers‘ 60-second rendition of 'New York City,'” says MTV Hive, noting "Thile’s soulful vocals" and "the song’s jazzy elegance."

    Thile is joining his vocals with those of guitarist Michael Daves for a concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Thursday featuring the traditional bluegrass tunes heard on their debut duo album, Sleep with One Eye Open, released last year on Nonesuch. Thile and his fellow Punch Brothers play a set at the ROMP: Bluegrass Roots & Branches Festival in Owensboro, Kentucky, on Friday, their last US show before launching a European tour next month.
