National - Six hour vinyl version of "Sorrow" repeated

8 posts in this topic

From the Reddit AMA today:
Are we going to see a “Live from the MoMA 2013″ album?
Matt Berninger: I think we are actually planning to release a 6 hour vinyl version of that performance for charity. Seriously. Hope it happens.
For some background:


The National performed at NYC's Museum of Modern Art's Queens branch Sunday but only played one song, "Sorrow," and played it for six hours. The show was a collaboration with Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson, and the work was titled "A Lot of Sorrow." According to the museum: "By stretching a single pop song into a day-long tour de force the artist continues his explorations into the potential of repetitive performance to produce sculptural presence within sound." There's only 42:34 worth of footage of the 105 performances that constituted the six hours,  and drummer Bryan Devendorf apparently sat out one rendition.
