This is the first single released since the band’s sixth studio album, Trouble Will Find Me.

The single is free with the purchase or rental of the band’s documentary Mistaken For Strangers. It is also available on iTunes.

According to the documentary’s website, the film is about: “Matt, the lead singer of the critically acclaimed rock band The National, finally finds himself flush with success. His younger brother, Tom, is a loveable slacker – a filmmaker and metal-head still living with his parents in Cincinnati…What starts as a rock documentary soon becomes a surprisingly honest portrait of a charged relationship between two brothers, and the frustration of unfulfilled creative ambitions.”
