twenty one pilots release stunning stripped-back performance of Heathens and Trees
If you were concerned that, since its one-off premiere back in May, we’d never get to watch twenty one pilots’ mind-blowing Livestream Experience ever again, then good news! Because they have just shared a lovely little snippet from it.
The duo – Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun – previously unveiled Shy Away from the performance back in June, and have now uploaded a truly stunning video of Heathens and Trees. In the clip, Tyler is sat in a boat while strumming his ukulele by moonlight, with the cinematic and picturesque setting made all the more beautiful by the frontman opting to play the songs totally stripped-back – as opposed to a more traditional full-band rendition.
Please can we have a full album of this, guys?
In other twenty one pilots news, Tyler announced overnight at the MTV VMAs that he and his wife Jenna are expecting their second child. “My wife is pregnant!” he revealed during an instrumental break while performing 2021 single Saturday. “I didn’t want to text everybody…”
