When Lake Street Dive got together to perform live in front of a virtual World Cafe audience recently, it was the first time in quite some time that they'd been able to perform songs from their new album, Obviously, in the same room as each other.

In this session, you'll hear that performance, and we'll talk to Lake Street Dive about how the group changed up its approach to songwriting since the last album, 2018's Free Yourself Up. The band kicks things off with the opening track to Obviously, "Hypotheticals," recorded live for the World Cafe.
