Olivia Rodrigo performed a stripped-down set of Sour hits at the DMV in the latest installment of NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series.
The setting was a nice wink to her breakout hit “Drivers License,” which she performed during the set. While Rodrigo had her backing band with her, her rendition of “Drivers License” was a solo performance.
Rodrigo opened her Tiny Desk set with a full-band, all-acoustic version of “Good 4 U.” She also performed “Traitor” and “Deja Vu.”
The news follows Rodrigo’s announcement of a worldwide tour in support of her groundbreaking debut album Sour, set to kick off in the United States in April of 2022.
Olivia Rodrigo and Phoebe Bridgers recently engaged in a discussion via Instagram Live, after both appeared on the television program Austin City Limits.
The two singer-songwriters both appeared on the December 4 episode of the PBS show, showcasing performances filmed at Austin’s Moody Theatre – marking Rodrigo’s first-ever visit to the Texan city.
After performing a few days apart from one another in October for the episode, the two hopped on Instagram Live to discuss touring. Rodrigo, who is yet to embark on a tour for her debut album Sour, asked Bridgers for her advice about looking after yourself while on the road.
“Getting to travel is great, but getting to travel because of [music] makes it much more fun,” Bridgers said.
The list, ran with the tagline “What the future sounds like and the people making it happen,” was assembled from a panel of judges that included Miley Cyrus, Justin Lubliner, Tayla Parx, and Phil Quist.
