The National

The new album by The National is so good that I’m having difficulty deciding which two tracks to feature today to share for a taste. The album, High Violet, was released yesterday and it is richly powerful, personal and passionate from start to finish. About a month and a half ago we featured the poignant “Bloodbuzz Ohio” as a previous Song of the Day. “Sorrow” and “Afraid of Everyone” (the latter with a little help from Sufjan Stevens) are today’s Songs of the Day.

“Sorrow”
