The National to perform their song “Sorrow” for six hours straight at New York gallery

The National are set to perform their song "Sorrow" for six full hours as part of an art installation at Moma PS1 in Long Island City, New York on May 5. The band will play their High Violet track live for a collaboration with artist Ragnar Kjartansson called A Lot Of Sorrow. A press release from the gallery reads: "By stretching a single pop song into a day-long tour de force the artist continues his explorations into the potential of repetitive performance to produce sculptural presence within sound."
