Rob Thomas stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday (June 17) to perform “One Less Day (Dying Young)” and “Can’t Help Me Now.” Both songs appear on his album Chip Tooth Smile, released earlier this year.
Equipped with a full band and backup singers, Thomas took the lead and performed the very catchy “One Less Day” with earned confidence. He preached to the crowd with the emotional yet uplifting hook, “I’m not afraid of getting older/ I’m one less day from dying young.”
Things slowed down a little bit with “Can’t Help Me Now,” but there was still plenty of emotion present. “Headlight, dark highway/ Drive on but it feels all sideways,” the rocker sang.
Chip Tooth Smile is out now via Atlantic Records. Thomas is also currently on a North American tour through Sept. 28.
