The National Announce Box Set | A Lot of Sorrow

On May 5, 2013 The National participated in an art installation as part of MoMA PS1’s Sunday Sessions, collaborating with Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson. The performance piece, A Lot of Sorrow, saw The National repeatedly perform their 3:25 song “Sorrow” for six continuous hours. Now the entire audio recording of the A Lot of Sorrow installation will be released by 4AD as a limited edition (1,500 pressing) vinyl boxed set on June 22.

Profits from the sale of the nine-LP clear vinyl box set will go to global health charity Partners in Health. A Lot of Sorrow is available now for pre-order via 4AD.
