On the telly: Watch The National play ‘Day I Die’ on Ellen

Watch The National play ‘Day I Die’ on Ellen

It was their first time on US daytime television.

The National have recently been on a US tour to promote their latest album ‘Sleep Well Beast’.

Along the way, they took to Ellen – their first ever daytime telly performance – to play their single ‘Day I Die’. It was a typically storming performance, backed by some break-neck visuals for good measure.

The National also recently released their new video for ‘The Dark Side of the Gym’, and they’ve announced a handful of live dates for next year, including a headline slot at new London event All Points East. They were also the first act to be announced for next year’s NOS Alive in Portugal.
