Leon Bridges Covers Neil Young’s ‘Helpless’ For ‘The Tonight Show’
Leon Bridges was a recent guest on an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The soul singer performed “Beyond” off his new album Good Thing and also recorded a Neil Young song backstage for the program’s Cover Room series.
Bridges’ Cover Room session features a rendition of “Helpless,” which appeared on 1970’s Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young album Déjà Vu. Bridges covered “Helpless” in concert in Toronto and Chicago in 2016 and last year teamed with Gary Clark Jr. and Jon Batiste on a cover of Young’s protest song recorded by CSNY, “Ohio.”
