The National Covers Queen's 'I Want to Break Free'
The National has been touring worldwide in support of its latest release, the ornate Sleep Well Beast, with, interestingly enough, a slew of covers of '80s rock and pop in tow. The band has taken on Talking Heads’ “Heaven” in London and New Order’s “Love Vigilantes” in Manchester, most likely a hometown shout-out to the hometown band.
And at Thursday night’s (Sept. 28) show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, the National began its encore with an animated performance of Queen’s “I Want to Break Free.”
