Steve Martin & Edie Brickell are scheduled to appear on tonight’s October 29 edition of the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC. They will perform the first single from their upcoming duet album, So Familiar, a song they wrote together called Won’t Go Back.
It’s another result of their unique writing style where Steve makes up melodies on his banjo, and then sends them on to Edie who gives them words. Not the most common songwriting paradigm in the music biz, but it works for these two.
You wouldn’t call this one a bluegrass song, but there’s Steve with his banjo all the same.
So Familiar is scheduled for release tomorrow on Rounder Records.
The Tonight Show airs at 11:35 (ET)/10:35 (CT). Look for them on TV again November 2 on Live! With Kelly and Michael.
