The National have announced they will be releasing a 10-year anniversary expanded edition of their 2010 album High Violet, on June 19. Originally released May 11, 2010, the critically acclaimed fifth studio album features the now-classic songs Terrible Love, Bloodbuzz Ohio, England and the perennial show closer Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks.
In addition to the 10 original tracks, the triple LP package includes a third LP containing tracks never-before-heard on vinyl, including Wake Up Your Saints, an alternate version of Terrible Love, Walk Off and more. The vinyl comes in three different versions; Standard (white & purple marbled vinyl), Cherry Tree (white & purple split colour vinyl) and Vinyl Me Please (white & purple splatter vinyl).
To celebrate the announcement, The National will share their D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus-directed film The National – High Violet Live From Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), shot May 10th, 2010, the night before the release of the album. Click here to watch the full hour session.
