Just a couple weeks after being nominated for a trophy at the 2018 Grammy Awards, Tyler, The Creator pulled up to perform a few tracks from his potentially award-winning Flower Boy album. In a literally unprecedented move, the folks at NPR let the former Odd Future frontman install his own lighting for the show.

Beneath the glow of purplish blue lights, Tyler performed his Flower Boy songs "Boredom," "See You Again" and "Glitter" with a live band for the first time. It's a laid-back performance everyone in the audience seems to be into, with Tyler, a few singers and the live band members laughing and smiling intermittently throughout the affair, which marked the first nighttime performance at NPR's famed Tiny Desk.

Check out Tyler's intimate Tiny Desk performance for yourself just below. Peep the dates for his joint tour with Vince Staples when you're done with that.
