The National Offer a Thanksgiving Treat
A recent episode of the FOX television show Bob’s Burgers features a new Thanksgiving-themed song. After writing the song for their cartoon, the show’s creators got in touch with indie rock group—and recent Trey Anastasio and Bob Weir collaborators—The National and asked them to record their own version of the tune. The band agreed and the website Vulture has posted The National’s version of the Thanksgiving number. Both the cartoon version of the song, and The National’s take can be found here .
Bob’s Burgers co-star Eugene Mirman is a huge indie rock fan and has shared many bills with members of The National family. The National will curate the UK edition of All Tomorrow’s Parties in December. The band will tour the US again in 2013.
