Leon Bridges Performs Neil Young’s "Helpless" for the ‘Tonight Show’ Cover Room

Soul crooner Leon Bridges stopped by The Tonight Show last week to support his sophomore album Good Thing with a performance on the late-night talk show, and Bridges also found some time to enter the Tonight Show Cover Room to take on Neil Young’s classic tune “Helpless.”

Backed by just a piano, acoustic guitar and a couple of background vocalists, Bridges presents an intimate rendition of Young’s heartfelt number, and the new, close-shot video of the performance matches well with the singer’s soul-baring style.

Watch below, along with Bridges’ full-band offering of Good Thing single “Beyond” from last weeks’ Tonight Show. Bridges plays tonight at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on a bill with Khruangbin and Masego.
