I’m pretty sure that this is the first new National song unveiled since Boxer, in its debut performance earlier this week at The Vega in Copenhagen, Denmark. This mp3 is just a rip from the video above (more pics from the taper here), but for us addicts I suppose it will do temporarily. The title could also be “Believe Me.” Swirling atmosphere and sonorous horns . . . I can’t wait to hear a clean copy of this.
