Comes with a digital download card! In France, the National had become such a sensation after Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers that renowned DJ Bernard Lenoir invited them to perform on his Black Sessions – following buzz bands like the Rapture and Interpol. A track from that session, "Murder Me Rachel" occupies the warm-blooded heart of Cherry Tree, a 7-song collection that delves the depths and brought their tension-wire rock to new heights. Clocking in at just under thirty minutes, Cherry Tree was an EP, a mini-LP, or a bridge to the future. It features five new songs and two bonus tracks, including one of those aforementioned live performances from France interradio and a trans-oceanic duet between the National's Matt Berninger and Clogs' Padma Newsome.
