Trey Anastasio & The Roots Perform ‘I Never Needed You Like This Before’ On ‘Fallon’
Trey Anastasio returned to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night, where he became the first musician to perform in-studio since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The Phish guitarist teamed with the show’s house band, The Roots for a performance of “I Never Needed You Like This Before” from his recently released quarantine album, Lonely Trip.
“I Never Needed You Like This Before” was filmed in a studio at 30 Rock adjacent to The Tonight Show’s usual space as per Rolling Stone, which also reports Anastasio was tested for COVID-19 and the negative results were received before he headed upstairs. Lonely Trip was released on Friday, July 31. Trey recorded the album at his home in New York City while self-quarantining. Bryce Goggin then mixed the 15-track LP.
