The National share video for 'Day I Die'

The National shared their latest track "Day I Die" from their forthcoming album Sleep Well Beast. The video, which was directed by Casey Reas, compresses the frenetic energy of performing with the grind of touring. It's a day in the life of The National.

Reas adds, "Graham MacIndoe captured eighteen time-lapse photo series during rehearsals at Le Centquatre in June 2017 in Paris. Hours of rehearsal are compressed into a few minutes. Over five thousand of these photographs were brought together to create the final video.

I wrote custom software to collage multiple photographs together and to compile them into videos. A flickering color layer abstracted from broadcast television signals augments the black and white footage. The images are played back at 12fps, near the threshold of the persistence of vision."
