Watch Young The Giant’s ‘MTV Unplugged’ Performance Of ‘Strings’ Before Tonight’s Premiere

If the ethereal preview of Young The Giant‘s cover of Gorillaz’s “Empire Ants” from their upcoming “MTV Unplugged” performance didn’t already have you counting down the hours until the premiere, then their haunting live rendition of “Strings” will seal the deal. Seated at the piano, frontman Sameer Gadhia begins his tale of longing: “Oh, what did I say?/She’s all shook up/Lost in the summer, man/We’re burning up/The time don’t show/When the sun gets carried/The tide curves off your body/Oh, you’ll stay with me.”

Watch Young The Giant’s “MTV Unplugged” presented by Starburst performance of “Strings” below, and don’t miss the show premiere tonight at 7 p.m. ET on Unplugged.MTV.com.
