The Mountain Goats appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform their song “Get Famous,” from the group’s most recent album Getting into Knives. The in-studio performance was filmed remotely; check it out below.
The Mountain Goats released two albums in 2020: April’s Songs for Pierre Chuvin, which Darnielle recorded alone on his boombox, and October’s Getting into Knives. In July, they joined fellow North Carolinians Superchunk, Iron & Wine, Hiss Golden Messenger, and more in covering their favorite songs for a compilation to benefit the Carrboro, North Carolina, music venue Cat’s Cradle.
