In other news from the National’s camp, Scott and Bryan Devendorf will team up with ex-Grateful Dead member Bob Weir to perform during an installment of the HeadCount-produced free-concert show “The Bridge Session”. That’ll be broadcast online March 24 fromTRI Studios, and will include original Dead/National songs, along with politically-charged covers.
The National’s upcoming album “Trouble Will Find Me“ features contributions from the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Annie Clark (superhero name: St. Vincent), Sharon Van Etten, Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry, Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), and Dark Dark Dark singer Non Marie Invie.
