Post Malone posted up at NPR’s office recently to play a delightful Tiny Desk Concert, just a couple of weeks after releasing his latest album AUSTIN.
Posty began the set not with a new track, but with his smash hit “Sunflower.” Outfitted with a band comprising some lush background vocals, strings, piano, and more, the pop-rap crossover got a bit of a saccharine, bluegrass-inspired facelift. After the song wrapped, Post shared his gratitude to NPR for the invitation: “I’m super excited to come on this show, and super nervous — I’m not, actually, never mind,” he said with a heavy dose of sarcasm. “I’m not nervous at all.”
Despite admittedly struggling to give his best vocal performance — “I’m on tour, so my voice is balls right now,” he warned — the proud Dallas Cowboys fan next gave an impassioned rendition of his 2017 ballad “I Fall Apart.” He rounded out the setlist with the 2019 single “Circles” and a brand-new track off AUSTIN called “Enough Is Enough.” Cracking plenty of jokes along the way, Posty proved he can command an intimate gig just as well as a packed stadium.
