The National - "Learning"


The National's next single from Trouble Will Find Me is "I Need My Girl," and even though it doesn't look like they're releasing it physically, they've recorded a b-side - a cover of Perfume Genius's "Learning," the title track from his 2010 album. We already find it hard enough to turn off the waterworks whilst jamming Perfume Genius stuff, so hearing the National's very good take on the track - complete with piano, horns, and morose group vocals - is a pretty intense and highly recommended emotional experience. Check it out.
