Post Malone cheek Saturday Night Live last night (05/14), and as teased, he was joined by Robin Pecknold of the Fleet Foxes to launch the new song “Love/Hate Letter to Alcohol”, which he and Robin wrote together. Robin was part of a choir that stood behind Posty, who was flanked by two women beating taiko drums, and those harmonies definitely sound a bit Fleet Foxes-esque. The song is among Posty’s most atmospheric, with no discernible chorus, just Post Malone delivering an emotional performance. Look below. Post Malone also performed his new single “Cooped Up” with Roddy Rich, and you can also watch it below. Both songs are set to appear on her new album Twelve karat toothachewhich arrives on June 3.
Post Malone has sung the praises of Fleet Foxes on several occasions, and a video was released in 2019 of his tour photographer Adam DeGross of Posty singing a Fleet Foxes song. Robin also said Post Malone almost featured on Fleet Foxes 2020 album Shore, and in 2021, it was reported that Posty, Robin and Kanye West were in the studio together. When Post Malone announced his new album, he teased the Robin Pecknold collaboration.
Next week (21/05) is the SNL season 47 finale with musical guest Japanese breakfast and host Natacha Lyonne.
