Brian Fallon Performs New Single on Colbert

Brian Fallon celebrated the release of his solo debut album, Painkillers, with a stop by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he performed the instantly likable track, “A Wonderful Life.

During his time with the Gaslight Anthem, Fallon recently drew comparisons to fellow New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen, and this number certainly feels very Springsteen-ish. It, and the rest of the album, also boast the wizardry of famed producer Butch Walker.

Watch Fallon live below, backed by several musicians including Gaslight Anthem guitarist Alex Rosamilia, the Horrible Crowes’ Ian Perkins (on a Gretsch 12-string), Jared Hart of The Scandals and Frank Marra.
