  • Olivia Rodrigo's Recorded Her NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert In The Best Place To Get A 'Drivers License'

    Olivia Rodrigo's made her NPR Tiny Desk Concert debut, popping into a DMV to record the set with her band. A DMV is where Americans go to update their vehicle registrations and driver's licenses, so it's a pretty fitting location.

    Olivia and her band performed four tracks, beginning with Good 4 U before playing Traitor, Drivers License and Deja Vu. The empty DMV definitely has some "interesting vibes", as Olivia points out, and everyone's sounding on point. 

    Each track has been stripped down for the performance, highlighting the strength of the songwriting. It's a different side to Olivia's music, but one that helps to illustrate the emotions present in each of the quartet of tracks. Olivia switches between guitar and piano for the performance, and her gut-wrenching solo piano performance of Drivers License is the standout moment of the set.

    It's hard to overstate the year that Olivia's had - it began with the release of her colossal debut single, soon followed by her seriously catchy (and at-times caustic) debut album, SOUR. She's up for six Grammy awards, including Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year.
