On 22 April 2019, The National took the stage at New York City’s famed Beacon Theatre for “A Special Evening With The National,” one of a series of five unique sold-out events in Paris, New York, London, Toronto and Los Angeles where the band performed their newest album and Mike Mills directed short film ‘I Am Easy To Find’ starring Alicia Vikander.

This concert document includes a complete performance of that album, special only to the Beacon Theatre show, with guest appearances from the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Julien Baker, This Is The Kit and Mina Tindle. The band also came out for an encore featuring songs from the band’s extensive catalogue. In addition to the film, Amazon Music will be releasing five songs from the evening as very special EP release, featuring ‘Rylan,’ ‘You Had Your Soul With You,’ ‘I Am Easy To Find,’ ‘Where is Her Head’ from their latest album I Am Easy To Find and ‘The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness’ from their album Sleep Well Beast.
