    The National dropped yet another terrific record earlier this year in the form of Sleep Well Beast, Today, they’ve shared a wild visual for the album cut “I’ll Still Destroy You”. The video was directed by Allan Sigurðsson and Icelandic performance and installation artist Ragnar Kjartansson, who collaborated with The National when they played their Trouble Will Find Me track “Sorrow” over and over for six hours during an installation project dubbed “A Lot Of Sorrow”.

    The “I’ll Still Destoy You” visual was filmed at Dope & Korruption in Denmark, a pop-up bar created by Kjartansson and the band during the HAVEN Festival, which Aaron and Bryce Dessner co-created. Attendees were treated to champagne, confetti, a sailor striptease and much merriment, providing a frenetic visual for the electronics-accentuated song. The crew was forced to shoot the video in just one hour, as Danish security officials shut down the bar during the shoot and it was destroyed the following day.
