The band played a set made up of mostly new songs from their upcoming new album.

The National performed at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles last night (April 26) and were joined on stage by special guests Phoebe Bridgers and Feist.

Readying the release of their upcoming eighth studio album, ‘I Am Easy To Find’, which comprises the LP and an accompanying film made by 20th Century Women director Mike Mills, The National are currently touring a series of ‘A Special Evening With…’ events across the globe – featuring a screening of the movie, a Q&A with its creators and the band, and a unique performance.

Last night, they stopped off in Los Angeles to perform the majority of the new album, as well as a few songs from their back catalogue during the encore, and they delighted fans by bringing out both Phoebe Bridgers and Feist at different parts of the show.
