New Release & Video: The National – I’ll Still Destroy You

The National have released the video for I’ll Still Destroy You, directed by Allan Sigurðsson and Icelandic performance and installation artist Ragnar Kjartansson. The track is taken from their most recent album Sleep Well Beastand you can see it below…

Ragnar Kjartansson, who also appears in the video, collaborated with The National for A Lot Of Sorrow which saw the band play their song Sorrow for six hours in front of a live audience at MOMA’s PS1. I’ll Still Destroy You was filmed in Copenhagen, Denmark during the Aaron and Bryce Dessner created HAVEN Festival. It was shot in one hour at Dope & Korruption, a pop-up bar created by Ragnar offering arancini, chocolate truffles, prosecco, classical music and a sailor striptease. During the video shoot the bar was shut down by Danish security officials and destroyed the day after!

The band have also announced a headlining slot during the second weekend of the inaugural All Points East Festival on Saturday, June 2nd at London’s Victoria Park. Tickets go on sale this Friday
