Watch: The National and Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry perform cover of Frightened Rabbit’s ‘My Backwards Walk’

The cover was a tribute to Scott Hutchison

The National played a show in Glasgow, Scotland yesterday night as part of the city’s Summer Nights at the Bandstand Festival, where the band performed a cover of Frightened Rabbit’s “My Backwards Walk” with Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry.

During their set, Matt Berninger and his bandmates welcomed Mayberry to the stage to join them to sing the track in tribute to the late Scott Hutchison. Scott Hutchison was the frontman of indie rock band Frightened Rabbit, and took his own life in May of 2018.

Mayberry joined The National and lined herself up with the backup singers and provided her vocals, giving an emotional cover with the rain falling down on the crowd.
