Jack Johnson appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last night as the musical guest. But Johnson offered up a special treat for the audience and viewers, having Colbert himself join him for a rendition of his 2008 hit song “Sleep Through The Static.”
The song was the title track to Johnson’s album from that year, and it posed as a pivot for Johnson to start singing about social issues and problems facing the world. Johnson’s latest album, “All The Light Above It Too” released last year, features Johnson on the cover among collected garbage from the ocean and beaches.
And Colbert does a fine job singing in tandem with Johnson. He even introduces the song by saying, “Folks this is the best job in the world, because I got what I wanted,” clearly referring to his desire to sing one of his favorite songs on stage with Johnson.
