Randy Newman was the musical guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. He performed "Losing You," a song featured on both his 2008 Nonesuch album, Harps and Angels, and, in a new, solo piano take, on his latest Nonesuch release, Songbook Vol. 2, which Fallon calls "a beautiful record." The new album takes a fresh look at both classic and more recent work in new solo takes on 16 of his celebrated songs, surveying 40 years of recordings. You can watch the performance below.
