So I just heard that one of my favourite bands, The National, are going to be releasing I Need My Girl as their next single today. I heard this song for the first time a couple of years ago, on December 8, 2011, when I saw them in concert in Toronto. This was one of the first times they played it live, and Owen Pallet came on stage to accompany them on violin. The whole show blew me away, but this song was one of the more memorable and special moments of the night.
If you’d like to see an audience video from that night’s performance with Owen Pallet, you can catch it here.
