Watch Alabama Shakes perform ‘Don’t Wanna Fight’ on Letterman

US chat giant David Letterman has again been at his old tricks of securing mouth-watering sessions from chart bothering heavyweights before anyone else.

This time around he welcomed hugely successful blues-rockers Alabama Shakes to the studio to host a rendition of ‘Don’t Wanna Fight’ from their second album Sound and Color, which will be released April 20th on Rough Trade.

The track signals a slight departure from the more soulful sounds that were heard on the band’s debut record Boys and Girls back in 2012 – instead veering towards a more danceable, disco-infused approach.

It all points towards a follow-up that looks as if it will very much be worth the wait. Don’t just take out word for it though! Watch the performance below.
