Phoebe Bridgers plays "Kyoto" in her bathtub for Jimmy Kimmel

Phoebe Bridgers performed her latest single "Kyoto" from her bathtub as part of Jimmy Kimmel's Live From The Lavatory series.

Yesterday (9 April), Phoebe Bridgers finally announced her second album Punisher. She also shared "Kyoto" as the lead single, which is, according to Bridgers, about "impostor syndrome".

Jimmy Kimmel decided to enlist Bridgers for his latest Live From The Lavatory performance, following the likes of Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and Sam Fischer.

Instead of arming herself with her usual weapon of choice - a guitar - Bridgers decided to opt for a beat machine and a microphone, performing the track while sitting in her bathtub.

Bridgers' second album Punisher will follow on from her 2017 debut LP Stranger in the Alps. The new record features her band - Marshall Vore (drums), Harrison Whitford (guitar), Emily Retsas (bass) and Nick White (piano) - as well as guest contributions from Conor Oberst, Lucy Dacus, Julien Baker, Blake Mills, Warpaint's Jenny Lee Lindberg, Christian Lee Hutson, Nick Zinner, Jim Keltner, and Bright Eyes' Nathaniel Walcott, who plays horns on "Kyoto".

"Kyoto" is out now. Phoebe Bridgers' Punisher album is due for release on 19 June via Dead Oceans, and is available to pre-order now.
