While touring behind their excellent album Sleep Well Beast, The National have peppered their shows with a number of covers. Matt Berninger and the twins have tackled everyone from New Order to Talking Heads to Queen to Tom Petty, all to the delight of live audiences. They also worked out a rendition of “Maybe Not” by Cat Power, a cover which can now be enjoyed without paying for a concert ticket thanks to a fresh studio recording.
