(GEMS RADIO)—The National and Bon Iver have teamed up for a new single.

Rock band The National has released the new song “Weird Goodbyes” as of yesterday. Bon Iver is also featured on the new tune.

The National has a new album coming your way sometime in 2023. Hopefully it will be more of a progressive album. “Weird Goodbyes” is about “letting go of the past and moving on, then later being overwhelmed by second thoughts,” The National frontman Matt Berninger said in a release.

Aaron Dessner adds,”“‘Weird Goodbyes’ was one of the first new songs we made. I was misusing drum machines, as usual, and stumbled onto this beat that got stuck in my head — it felt like something only Bryan [Devendorf] could naturally play. We built the song around the beat. Matt’s melody and words felt so elegant and moving from the beginning — mourning a loss of innocence and motivation, holding onto memories and feelings that inevitably slip away and the grief we all suffer in weird goodbyes.”

The National are on tour until the end of September.
