Day 68 The National – Lean

The National - LeanNow only six days until I see The National perform at Alexandra Palace in London, it seems perfect timing that the band have brought out a brand new single, Lean, a song that will feature on the upcoming Hunger Games Soundtrack. A quintessential ballad from The National, Lean examines apocalyptic scenarios in a gloomy, yet inspiring manner. Perhaps the opening lyrics sum Lean up the best: “Everybody needs a prayer and needs a friend / Everybody knows the world’s about to end.” What somber genius!
