Caroline Polachek (formerly of Chairlift) released an acclaimed new album, Desire, I Want to Turn Into You, last month via Perpetual Novice. Last night she was the musical guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she performed the album’s “Welcome to My Island.” She performed on a blacked out stage, no backing band. Two-thirds of the way through the camera cuts and then Polachek has an electric guitar. Watch the performance below, followed by Polachek’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously she shared the album’s main single, “Welcome to My Island,” which was produced by Polachek alongside Dan Nigro, Dan Harle, and Jim-E Stack. It was shared back in December and was #2 on our Songs of the Week list. In December she also shared a music video for the song. In January she shared two remixes of “Welcome to My Island,” one by Charli XCX (who sings on the rework) and The 1975’s George Daniel, and another by UK dance trio PVA. Then in January she shared the album’s “Blood and Butter,” which also made our Songs of the Week list.

Desire, I Want to Turn Into You also features the 2022 singles “Bunny is a Rider” and “Billions.”
