[Video] The National - "Terrible Love"

Our first look at The National's forthcoming LP High Violet came last night on Fallon's show. The song, "Terrible Love" is somewhere between the piano-driven "Fake Empire" and the finger-picked "All The Wine." "Terrible Love" has a second-movement, with horns and ratatat drums and most importantly, finds the band back to the darkness that colored Alligator. Somewhere, Matty Berninger is drinking white zinfandel and thinking about what rhymes with "soho riots," but in the last half of "Terrible Love," he's back closer to the sound that gave suggestions to "Abel" and promised no letdown from his personal avatar, "Mr. November."
