Courtesy of the good folks at Beggars, an exclusive sneak peek at not only another track from The National’s new album Boxer but also the A Skin, A Night documentary film being assembled by unofficial band videographer Vincent Moon.

And it’s also my first YouTube embed, but that’s probably not so interesting to you. But this should be – the first official MP3:

MP3: The National – “Fake Empire”

If this doesn’t get you excited for the new album, you’re dead. The record is out May 22 and they’re at the Opera House on June 5 with Shapes & Sizes.

    fake empire is amazing! the body of the song is moving, classic national and then it explodes into a brass fanfare. i bet it leaks very soon. journalists must have it already.
