Anderson East is definitely on the A-list — that is, the RCA Studio A in Nashville list — as he performs live from the historic facility. The singer-songwriter offers a tour of the studio, which has lately served as the den of his producer, Dave Cobb. Joined by a pianist and three backup singers, East performs five songs from his new album, Maybe We Never Die, including the singles “Madelyn” and “Drugs” as well as “Lights On,” “Hood of My Car” and the title track — all in a stripped-back fashion that offers an even clearer sense of the R&B, pop, Americana and rock influences that come together in his music.
