Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we can watch the emotional performance in the stream below.Says Potter of the performance, “The skeletal body of that song will never change, and the way that it makes you feel will never change, but you can play it a million different ways… We’re going to tweak it out a little bit, get a little weird.”For more on the new Dear Jerry release, head here.

Antarctic ice is at an all-time low this month since the satellite record started in 1979.On March 1, when the ice was last measured there were only 817,800 square miles of ice compared to the former lowest record of 884,200 square miles.Antarctica is just coming off its summer months, January and February, where temperatures can exceed 50º F . In the past, the South Pole’s ice levels have been more stable, unlike the degrading sea ice of the North Pole. Antarctica experienced minimal ice growth this past fall and winter, and that has contributed to the lack of ice coverage. This reduction of ice could have big impacts on global weather patterns and escalate the already warming global temperatures. Scientists believe there to be a correlation between global warming and the falling levels of sea ice in both poles.Read more here.
