The band performs a special studio session for New York City’s WFUV in advance of its new sixth album, Trouble Will Find Me. Watch The National perform “Graceless,” live from The Cutting Room Studios in Manhattan.
Best Day Ever!
Now that the album is finally here, I’m counting down to the day I see them LIVE! <3<3<3
There’s this feeling you get, or rather I get, when you hear a good album or song for the first time. It’s kind of whimsical, like I can finally breathe or some cliched weight has been lifted from my shoulders. It’s the knowing that this new thing will be with you for a while. These songs will be used to quiet your mind, they’ll dictate your mood, they can calm you.
It’s the feeling you get after seeing a show and feeling that transference of energy. Witnessing the sweat and love put into one’s work up close, it imposes a sense of want. You want to do more, feel more.
I love that feeling…

Did you know your brother was filming at the tour?
A brief glimpse of his face popped up on Fox’s 10 o’clock news last night and I squealed like a child. (Do children squeal? Is that a thing?)
It was embarrassing, but my God, HOW COULD I NOT?!
