The Naked and Famous Celebrate Debut Album’s 10th Anniversary During Billboard Live At-Home Performance

Before celebrating the release of their upcoming album RecoverThe Naked and Famous noted an important anniversary date during their Billboard Live At-Home performance Monday (July 20), which raised money for the NAACP Foundation.

The New Zealand indie electronic band released their debut album Passive Me, Aggressive You on Sept. 6, 2010, and 10 years later, vocalist/keyboardist Alisa Xayalith and vocalist/guitarist Thom Powers will deliver their fourth album Recover on Friday, July 24.

“I cannot believe we are still here a decade later,” Xayalith exclaimed during the half-hour set. “Thank you so much to all of you guys that have tuned into the livestream, that have been with us from the very beginning. It’s insane.”

As fans started recalling in the comments section where they were when they first heard “Punching in a Dream,” “Young Blood,” and other songs the two performed acoustically, Powers pointed out one special furry friend who’s been a longtime supporter and even muse.

“[‘Sunseeker’] is about Alisa’s gorgeous dog, her name is Ginger,” he said while wrapping their performance of the tune. She explained she came to the nickname because Ginger loves lying out in the sun while demonstrating how she wags her nose in the air. Ginger made a special cameo during the Billboard Live at the tail end.
