The expanded take finds Tones And I delivering a powerful and transcendent performance of “Never Seen The Rain,” joined by a choir and three-piece band.
The alternate version of “Never Seen The Rain” arrives on the heels of Tones And I’s performance yesterday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Tones showcased her staggering voice across performances of her breakout global hit “Dance Monkey” and “Never Seen The Rain.” Having recently performed on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Voice, Tones And I is also slated to perform on The Today Show this coming Monday, February 24th.
“Never Seen The Rain” is the latest single from Tones And I’s debut EP, The Kids Are Coming, and follows “Dance Monkey,” which has now surpassed 2 billion streams globally, while ruling the charts in more than 30 countries around the world. The most Shazamed song of all time and the longest running #1 ever on the daily global Spotify chart, “Dance Monkey” currently sits at #5 this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making “Dance Monkey” the first top five Hot 100 hit solely written by a woman in over eight years.
In Australia, “Dance Monkey” holds the all-time record for the most weeks spent at #1 on the ARIA singles chart, while in the UK “Dance Monkey” has made Tones And I the longest running #1 of all time by a female artist on the Official Singles Chart. The New York Times recently detailed the making of “Dance Monkey” in their Diary of a Song video series, speaking with Tones And I about her journey from local busker to global star.
Tones And I will kick off the European leg of “The Kids Are Coming Tour” with a two night stand in London (2/28 & 2/29) followed by shows in Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and France [see itinerary below].
