The National Debut New Song!
Last week it was confirmed that the National would be releasing their next record, High Violet on May 10th. Well last night saw the debuting of the first track off this record, Terrible Love, on Jimmy Fallon.
Sounds rather like an epic, Edge-guitar fuelled stadium track. I always enjoyed how the National were capable of writing big sounding songs without falling into the epic rock category (the Kings of Leon Use Somebody would be what I'm referring to here - needlessly overblown. Muse all too often manage this too, while the likes of Snow Patrol and the Killers seem to be striving to achieve it!) so let's hope they continue this on the forthcoming LP.
Above is the artwork for the record... A little different from the simple black album covers of Alligator and Boxer, though I like it.
Check out the track below.
... Okay for some reason I'm having quite a few connection problems today. Apologies but the video will not upload much to my intense frustration.
