The National Premiere 3 New Songs at Berlin Concert

With only six weeks until the release of their sixth album Trouble Will Find Me, the National have decided to be generous and premiere three more new songs off the album. At last night's concert at Berlin’s Michelbergerhotel, the band premiered new tracks "Heavenfaced," "Fireproof" and "Graceless." The first two showcase the dire, slow burn that made albums like The Boxer and High Violet so acclaimed. "Graceless" is a (relatively) raucous track, anchored by Bryan Devendorf's post-punk-influenced drumbeat. No guest cameos like on the album, but watch/listen anyway:




The group also premiered three more live songs before announcing the new album. A quick refresher to get you all up to date.

“I Should Live in Salt”


“I Need My Girl”
