Crowded House Perform “Teenage Summer” on Kimmel: Watch

On Friday, Crowded House dropped their eighth studio album, Gravity Stairs, and to promote the release, they stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform the single “Teenage Summer.”

Taking the Jimmy Kimmel Live! stage, the band delivered a solid rendition of the breezy, nostalgic song, with a shimmering 12-string guitar leading the arrangement. As the momentum built, an electric guitar line provided a counter-melody to the lyrical refrain “Are we gonna have some teenage summer?/ Am I gonna have some mad idea?” ultimately reaching an anthemic climax. Watch the video of the performance below.
