Fitz And The Tantrums will join the festivities on Thursday morning (January 30th) for Ellen DeGeneres as the program celebrates its host’s birthday. The band will perform “The Walker,” the latest single from its More Than Just A Dream album. The track has already risen to Number 17 on the Alternative chart and looks set to follow its chart-topping predecessor, “Out Of My League,” into the Top 10.
- “The Walker” is apparently a DeGeneres favorite that she handpicked to launch a new ad campaign for the Oscars, which she is hosting in early March.
- Fitz And The Tantrums taped an episode of the PBS series Live From The Artists’ Denon Wednesday (January 29th) and will make their next TV appearance on the March 3rd edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
