    Watch: Yola Performs NPR Tiny Desk Concert
    Mhari Shaw / NPR

    Yola stopped by the NPR offices in Washington, DC, to perform a Tiny Desk Concert for host Bob Boilen and the staff of NPR and NPR Music. She and her band performed songs from her multiple Grammy-nominated, Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, Walk Through Fire—"Faraway Look" and "It Ain't Easier"—as well as "I Don't Wanna Lie," from the deluxe digital edition of the album released in December. You can watch the full set below.

    "Yola's presence behind the Tiny Desk was commanding, her energy captivating and, oh, that voice!" exclaims Boilen. She "is front-and-center and up for four Grammy awards in 2020, including Best New Artist. At this Tiny Desk Concert, you'll hear why." You can read more at npr.org/music.

    In addition to "I Don't Wanna Lie," the deluxe digital edition of Walk Through Fire includes Yola's cover of Elton John’s classic "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." The album is available to download in the Nonesuch Store, iTunes, and Amazon, and is streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Yola continues her US tour in the Midwest this weekend, performing in St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Columbus. She performs at the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute to Aerosmith in Los Angeles over Grammy weekend and joins Brandi Carlile's Girls Just Wanna Weekend 2 in Maya Riviera, Mexico, before resuming the tour in Texas.
