Watch The National Perform New Song ‘Light Years’ In Cincinnati

Band unveiled new song at Hometown Festival

Over the weekend, The National gave fans in their home town of Cincinnati a little more than they bargained for when they debuted a new song “Light Years” for the first time.

It hasn’t even been a full year since the now Brooklyn-based group released their Grammy-award winning album Sleep Well Beast, though it looks as if they are ready to drop another. “Light Years” was the cherry on top of their weekend performances at the band’s Homecoming Festival, where they also performed the 2007 album Boxer in full. The new track is a National certified slow jam. Check out the performance below:
