Watch: The National performs ‘Rylan’ on ‘Colbert’

This is the first time they've played the song on television.

The National made an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert where they performed “Rylan”, a new song off their most recent album I Am Easy To Find.

With a four-piece string section and a horn player, The National brought cinematic energy to their performance. It was the first time “Rylan” has been performed on television, and they knocked it out of the park.
