The National embarked on a summer tour to road test material from their upcoming studio album. During their concert in Los Angeles last night, the band brought out St. Vincent’s Annie Clark for a new song called “Prom Song 13th Century (Frankie & Johnny)”. Watch fan-shot footage above.
Clark previously collaborated with The National for a cover of Crooked Fingers’ “Sleep All Summer”. She’s also joined the band on stage several times over the years. During their 2013 show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Clark sang on “This is the Last Time”.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXsrXqqGWEM
