We have another single to tide us over as we patiently await for The National's new album, I Am Easy to Find.
The latest single, a piano-driven jaunt that features guest vocals from Gail Ann Dorsey and Lisa Hannigan - is titled “Hairpin Turns.”
The release comes with a video directed by Academy Award nominee Mike Mills and features a dancer (Sharon Eyal moving) making her way around a blank white room while the band members and singers perform around her.
Mills said of the video:
“The video is a very simple portrait of the band (and the friends who helped make the song) and the song itself: You see all the instruments that make up the song in isolation, even hear them recorded live on set over the album version, kind of like showing you the tracks that make up the song,”
