Earlier this year The National previewed their new album with a few very special shows, including one at NYC's Beacon Theatre in April which featured guest appearances from Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Julien Baker, This Is The Kit and Mina Tindle. That show was filmed for a concert film / documentary that is coming to Amazon Prime Video this week....
The brainchild of Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, day two of the festival, like day one, found Justin and Aaron (Bryce couldn't be there because of scheduling issues) performing with other acts, particularly for Big Red Machine's set, which ended up as a big family affair.
”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,” director Mike Mills said.
The National were joined by Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Julien Baker, James McAlister, Yuki Numata Resnick, and album guest vocalists Kate Stables and Mina Tindle as they debuted songs from their new album I Am Easy to Find, at Beacon Theatre.
