The National‘s Sleep Well Beast landed yesterday after months of singles, videos, and live performances (including a recent one on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert). This morning, the band celebrated its release by dropping by CBS This Morning: Saturday to perform a number of songs from the record, which we adored for its “lush, masculine melancholy.”
