The National Unveil Cover of Cat Power's "Maybe Not"
Published Nov 15, 2017The National released their latest studio album Sleep Well Beast earlier this year, but in addition to their own new tracks, they've been busting out covers of Talking Heads, New Order and Tom Petty on tour. Now, the band have shared a studio recording of another cover, delivering their own take on Cat Power's "Maybe Not."
Quiet acoustic strumming and Matt Berninger's husky baritone eventually get backed by electronic flourishes, before piano, bass, drums and strings slowly swell into moments of full-fledged sound.
The National's rendition of "Maybe Not" arrives alongside a new version of Sleep Well Beast cut "Carin at the Liquor Store" for Spotify Singles, and you can hear both tracks down below.
