    Videos: Randy Newman Performs "Losing You" on "Jimmy Fallon," Plus "Short People" in Web Exclusive

    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.

    Prefix says the new album's "reinterpretations of his classic works offer a chance to hear his material with fresh ears" and his "performance demonstrates Newman’s famous way with words, but it also shows what an affecting singer he can be." See for yourself in the Late Night performance here, via The Audio Perv:


    Newman stayed on after the show was over to offer the studio crowd a solo-piano rendition of his famous song "Short People" in a web-exclusive performance from latenightwithjimmyfallon.com. Watch it here:


    To pick up a copy of Songbook Vol. 2 or any of the albums in Newman's Nonesuch catalog, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.
