Brittany Howard Performs For NPR 'Tiny Desk Concert'

Brittany Howard is in the midst of her solo tour and we knew it was only a matter of time before the then Athens-born songstress and Alabama Shakes front woman showcased her vocals on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

During her appearance at NPR's Washington DC headquarters, the Lover songstress, 29, performed stripped down versions of several tracks, some old some new, telling the audience: 'I just chose to take this as an opportunity to show you guys how the songs sounded when I first wrote them'.

In the video, Swift performed a four-song set, which included tracks like "The Man" and "Lover" from her seventh studio album, Lover.

After introducing herself, Swift explained why she was so excited to be given the chance to put on a Tiny Desk concert. "Tiny Desk is, like, one of my favorite corners of the internet".

Wheel of Fortune later shared the clip on its social media accounts, adding the comment: "We appreciate a stark sense of humour". Host Pat Sajak asked a contestant named Blair Davis to say something about himself and the answer was rather shocking.

"I just chose to take this as an opportunity to show you guys how the songs sounded when I first wrote them", she said. "There's no dancers, unfortunately". For her second song, Swift picked title track "Lover", whose romantic lyrics were reflected in the embroidered hearts and Cupid's-arrow motifs adorning her outfit.

"This song is my proof you don't have to stop writing songs about heartache and misery, which for me is incredible news."

Swift went on to thank NPR, writing: 'Thank you @npr for that awesome experience, I can't wait to relive it when #tinydesk comes out!'
