Sylvan Esso gathered on the infield at an otherwise empty Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, North Carolina to film a performance of “Numb.” The duo consisting of Nick Sanborn and Amelia Meath shared the resulting video as a preview of their upcoming Shaking Out The Numb Fall Tour 2021.

Sanborn handles synth and production as Meath belts out “Numb.” The pair released the studio version of the song on their 2020 studio album, Free Love.

Durham Bulls Athletic Park hosts the Tampa Bay Rays’ Triple-A affiliate and is located within Sylvan Esso’s home state of North Carolina. The location is the latest interesting spot where the pair have performed since releasing Free Love.

Sylvan Esso returns to the road at Bonnaroo on September 4 to open their fall tour. Dates in Oregon, Washington, California, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, Delaware, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Washington D.C., Massachusetts and New York follow for the duo who contributed a cover of Phish's “Farmhouse” to JamBase’s Cluster Flies compilation.
