Tomorrow, Sia releases her new album This Is Acting. It’s full of songs she wrote for other artists, so it makes sense, in a way, that, last night on Fallon, she joined Jimmy, the Roots, and Natalie Portman for a cover of the classic New Orleans folk song “Iko Iko,” complete with the so-called “classroom instruments” Fallon has become known for.
The clip features the Roots, Portman, and Fallon dressed all in white or black, topped with what’s become one of Sia’s signature wigs. It’s a nice performance, and Sia kills it on the vocals. The percussion is really what makes it, though. Watch the video below.
Sia also performed a cut from her album, “Cheap Thrills.”
