Listen: The National cover Perfume Genius’ “Learning” + New Tour Dates

The National offer baritone and brooding textures on their rendition of Perfume Genius’ “Learning”. The cover acts as the B-side to “I Need My Girl”, the latest single from Trouble Will Find Me.

While the band’s take mostly stays true to the moving, piano-led original — a highlight off Perfume Genius’ 2010 album of the same name — Matt Berninger’s deep bellow seems to add another dimension of previously unexplored sentimentality. It’s dark, heavy, and all the resonant. Check it out below.
