The National are joined by St Vincent at Latitude The National Tickets
Annie Clark joins the Brooklyn five-piece on their Friday night headline slot
The singer, real name Annie Clark, joined the band for 'Afraid Of Everyone' from The National's most recent album, 'High Violet', which frontman Matt Berninger jokingly dedicated to the Murdoch family.
Clark then reappeared for 'Think You Can Wait', a new single that features New York folk singer Sharon Van Etten on the original recording.
The Brooklyn band played Latitude last year – however, 2011 marked their first UK festival headlining slot.
Towards the end of a rarities-heavy set which saw them visit bonus track 'Driver Surprise Me' from 2005's 'Alligator', guitarist Aaron Dessner explained that they wanted to play at least one song from each of the band's five albums. As such, fans were treated to 'Son' from their debut self-titled album, released in October 2001.
As has become customary on this tour, the band finished with an acoustic version of 'Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks', the closing song from 'High Violet'.
The National played:
'Afraid Of Everyone'
'Driver Surprise Me'
'Think You Can Wait'
'Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks'
