Your Second Attempt At This Song Of The Week

2010 May 16

The National – Sorrow


So The National’s latest album, High Violet, is actually out, so I hope posting this mp3 is cool now. And just because maybe some people already listened to this song the first time I posted it, I’m going to add this performance of “Afraid of Everyone” on Letterman.

Edit: Just listen to “Bloodbuzz Ohio”, which is embedded in the comment below.

    We do appreciate that you are fans of / are promoting The National, but the labels and artist would greatly appreciate your co-operation in removing your links to the pirate files in question.

    Thank you for respecting the artist’s wishes and, if you / your readers want good quality, non-pirated, preview tracks, then a full length, high quality version of “BloodBuzz Ohio” is available for fans and bloggers to link to / post / host etc from and “Afraid of Everyone” is now also available from … .. for further details of the new album, on-line promotions, videos and 2010 shows, check-out the official site, as well as the band’s MySpace at and YouTube channel at … .. and keep an eye on these official sources for details of further news, preview material and on-line promotions.

    Also and as a goodwill gesture to fans and bloggers, an exclusive preview stream of the full album is currently available via KCRW “On Demand” at … .. this is for hyper-linking only and so that fans can stream directly off KCRW, so please reciprocate this goodwill gesture by NOT ripping and re-hosting these files. Last, but not least, keep an eye on for the “Castle Rock Sessions” featuring live versions of tracks off “High Violet”.
