On Wednesday, Strand Of Oaks stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform new song “Ruby.” The project of Timothy Showalter, Strand Of Oaks will release a new album, Eraserland, on March 22 via Dead Oceans.

Showalter tapped a number of his musical friends for the performance. Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Centro-matic’s Will Johnson and My Morning Jacket’s Bo Koster and Tom Blankenship all joined Showalter on “Ruby,” capturing the melancholy heartland rock of the studio track with plenty of heft from Isbell’s guitar and a fiddle assist from Shires.

Koster and Blankenship, alongside fellow MMJ members Carl Broemel and Patrick Hallahan, played as part of Showalter’s backing band on Eraserland. Jason Isbell guests on the album.
