The National Performs ‘Light Years’ For SiriusXM


This past weekend, The National were featured on SiriusXM’s SiriusXMU Sessions. Video of the group’s performance of “Light Years” at the company’s New York City headquarters has been shared.

The National recorded “Light Years” for inclusion on their recently released studio album, I Am Easy To Find. Host Jenny Eliscu spoke with the band about the LP and the short film of the same name directed by filmmaker Mike Mills. The National also performed a few songs including the previously shared “Rylan.” Just as with “Rylan,” the group is joined by backing vocalists and a string section for “Light Years.”
