Last night at Show Up!—a Planned Parenthood and All Access Coalition benefit concert—The National debuted a new song called “Turtleneck”. Watch a video documenting part of the performance below.

The National will release a new song later this year. Last October, frontman Matt Berninger gave us an update, calling the record “strange” and “really dark”. 

“It’s about marriage, and it’s about marriages falling apart,” he continued. “I’m happily married, and but it’s hard, marriage is hard and my wife and I are writing the lyrics together about our own struggles and it’s difficult to write, but it’s saving my marriage.”
