The National perform “Day I Die” on Colbert: Watch

on September 08, 2017, 9:25am

Last night, The National stopped by the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform “Day I Die” off of Sleep Well Beast, the band’s just released and highly enjoyable seventh album. Sleep Well Beast continues the band’s unprecedented streak of fantastic records, and stands out in The National’s discography for seeking to capture the essence of the band’s rowdy live shows. Replay last night’s performance, which featured an expanded percussion section, up above.

The National have shared a great deal of the material from Sleep Well Beast ahead of its release, and each song they’ve shared—“Carin at the Liquor Store”“The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness”, “The Day I Die”  and “Guilty Party”—recieved the video treatment from director Casey Reas. The band continues the promotional whirlwind this weekend with a special show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on September 8th that will air on SiriusXM channel 25 and through all SiriusXM apps and they’ll also be playing CBS This Morning – Saturday on September 9th.
