The National - Terrible Love

Last night, The National played the opening track from their upcoming album, "High Violet", on Jimmy Fallon Live. The song is entitled "Terrible Love", and doesn't seem to range too far from the sound they established on "Boxer", and "Alligator", but also doesn't sound like a B-side from either of those albums. It starts softly and languid, and all of a sudden the rhythm picks up and the guitars get noiser, and the horns creep in, and the whole song swells. I'm really digging the horns and the vocal harmonies on this one. "High Violet" comes out May 11th.
