The National Honor Valentine’s Day With Sweet ‘I Need My Girl’ Video

By Jeremy D. Larson

The National are known to be purveyors of bummer jams, but in their video for ‘I Need My Girl’, the dour Brooklyn band try their best to brighten things up. The song, which can be found on the band’s latest Trouble Will Find Me, is one of the more lighter moments of the album and gets a video that just may tug at the heart strings.

Watch the clip below, directed by Sophia Peer.

The National are currently curating a Grateful Dead tribute album and will set out on tour this spring. Check out the dates below:
