Noah Kahan Performs “Dial Drunk” & “Stick Season” on Saturday Night Live
American singer-songwriter Noah Kahan appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform “Dial Drunk” and “Stick Season”.
This marks his debut on SNL as a musical guest.
Two songs are featured on his third studio album “Stick Season”, which was released in October 2022. But “Dial Drunk” is included on a deluxe version of theird album called “Stick Season (We'll All Be Here Forever)”.
“Dial Drunk” was written by Noah Kahan, American rapper Post Malone, aka Austin Post, snd Noah Levine.
Noah Kahan and Post Malone released the song as a duet version back in July.
Co-writer Noah Levine told Sheesh Media about the song, “Honestly, we didn't go into it with the intent of writing anything special. He (Noah Kahan) came over to play some basketball with me and my friends, and then we ended up deliriously writing a song for fun in my room and came up with the first draft of 'Dial Drunk.'”
After performing the final chorus of the song, Noah Kahan said to the audience, “I'll die for you SNL. Or at least, seriously injure myself.”
“Stick Season” is the album title and written and produced by Noah Kahan, with production by Gabe Simon.
Noah Kahan told Genius about the song, “There's a lot of beef between New Hampshire and Vermont so I have to say I was from both but I'd call myself Vermoner. But it's definitely a song about you know the time of year in Vermont stick season when all the leaves are off the trees and it's a term that was used by some of the older folks in the town I grew up in to describe this like really miserable time of year when it's just kind of gray and cold and there's no snow yet and kind of the beauty of the foliage is done. It's time of year that very specific to where I grew up and you know I was concerned that I might alienate people and I was like this is incredibly specific like every one thinks Vermont's in Canada I'm not sure if anyone's gonna get this but it was cool to see it connect with people have their own meanings of what stick season might mean to them or what their hometowns mean to them so it was cool to see it connect outside of New England.”
Also, before Saturday Night Live, Noah Kahan received a nomination for Best New Artist at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.
