One enviable surprise during The National’s headlining performance last night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center was guest vocalist Annie Clark (of St. Vincent). The fellow Brooklynite came out for a stirring rendition of Trouble Will Find Me cut, “This is the Last Time”. The track, which is arguably one of the strongest off the album, received a warm touch from Clark, whose vocals just marry frontman Matt Berninger’s. This would explain why she appears on the album. Catch the performance below, and make sure to read through our write up of last night’s awe-inspiring gig.
The Top Star-earning Trouble Will Find Me is currently available via 4AD. In related news, The National is the subject of our latest cover story, and one of our most recent lists: The Nationals Top 20 Songs as expressed by GIFs.
