This is the third single from their new album entitled Sleep Well Beast, out 09.08.17. I was a bit worried after “The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness”, but “Guilty Party” and this new song are just experimental enough while still holding on to that same beloved feeling that The National always brings.
Hamilton Leithauser, the vocalist of The Walkmen, and Rostam Batmanglij, the mastermind behind Vampire Weekend, are releasing a collaborative album next week. This is the first single off that album which they recently performed on The Late Show. The song is epic, and this performance of it is even more epic. Enjoy.
