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.

They'll go the Third Man route and make it 3RPM to fit on a single vinyl.
