The National Shares ‘Rylan’ From New Album


On June 17, The National will release their latest album I Am Easy To Find. Now, before the new record drops via 4AD, the Cincinnati rock act has previewed the collection with a final single, “Rylan.”

Starting with a prominent, aggressive drum beat, the song opens with the addition of more airy keys. Soon after, vocalist chimes in, offering his characteristic voice to the smooth rendition. Later in the song, Berninger is joined by a number of supporting female vocalists, who bring a softness to the track. The National debuted “Rylan” live in 2011 and then it disappeared from the repertoire until 2017. The song has been played frequently ever since. Listen to the studio version of “Rylan” below:
