Alabama Shakes performing “Over My Head” on ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’

With the #1 album in the country, Alabama Shakes gave a beautiful live performance of “Over My Head” on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last week.

“Loving so deeply I feel it through all my past lives,” powerhouse frontwoman Brittany Howard sweetly crooned. “It feels good,” the background singers chimed in.

The bluesy tune appears on the Southern rock band’s second studio album, Sound & Color, which debuted on April 21, 2015 (Rough Trade Records, ATO Records, MapleMusic Recordings), and currently sits at #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Albums Chart.

Their 2012 LP, Boys & Girls, peaked at #6 on the same chart and went certified Gold.
