The National Perform “Space Invader” and “Deep End (Paul’s in Pieces)” on Later… with Jools Holland: Watch

The National stopped by BBC’s Later… with Jools Holland recently to perform “Space Invader” and “Deep End (Paul’s in Pieces),” two highlights from their latest album Laugh Track.

The recently-renovated Alexandra Palace Theatre made a pretty good backdrop for The National, who are just a few weeks out from their surprise-released LP. “Space Invader” — which The National released back in August — filled up the auditorium with Matt Berninger’s booming vocals and the Dessner brothers’ sweeping shredding; meanwhile, “Deep End” offered a contrasting blast of high-energy. Both sound wonderful!

Laugh Track follows The National’s April 2023 album First Two Pages of Frankenstein.
