National-ization Week Continues–Watch The National Perform Four Songs From “Sleep Well Beast” on CBS This Morning

Sep 10th, 2017 in Music

The National were everywhere this past week in support of their just-released album Sleep Well Beast. They performed the entire album live for NPR, performed Day I Die on Colbert, and most recently four songs on CBS This Morning. Watch below as the band performs those songs live on CBS This Morning, presented in the album’s order below. The System Sleeps In Total Darkness is one of the best songs they’ve ever released, and live it is both nuanced (those background, Brian Wilson-influenced vocals) and incendiary (Aaron Dessner’s ravaging guitar solo, Matt Berninger’s vocal fervor, and Bryan Devendorf’s drumming–wow!).

Pick up the critically-acclaimed Sleep Well Beast HERE or buy/stream it HERE.
