Watch John Moreland Make Network TV Debut With ‘Break My Heart Sweetly’
John Moreland's latest album, High on Tulsa Heat, is chock full of heartbreakingly beautiful tunes, all laced with a voice that sounds like it's been through hard, hard times. Surprisingly, though, the singer-songwriter's appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday night (Feb. 1) didn't include a track from his 2015 release; instead, Moreland opted to perform "Break My Heart Sweetly," a tune from 2013's In the Throes.
Armed with just a guitar and a microphone, Moreland keeps the focus squarely set on his keen story of love, loss, demons, dreams, sadness and, well, more sadness. This intimate performance of "Break My Heart Sweetly" is the artist's network television debut -- and we think it's safe to say that he'll earn himself a wealth of new fans because of it. If you missed it (or want to watch it again), press play on the video above to check out Moreland's Colbert gig.
The Oklahoma native will be on the road throughout the next several months, including a stop at this year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn. Moreland's full tour itinerary -- and details on High on Tulsa Heat and In the Throes -- is available at his official website.
