The National have collaborated with Loren Bouchard’s hit animated comedy and have shared a brand new song, “Save the Bird”. The animated video that accompanies the song is below.
The Bob’s Burgers crew acting on inspiration from the series’ recent Thanksgiving episode sent the lyrics to “Save the Bird” to the slack rockers. The band came up with a mournfully sublime song that sees Matt Berninger’s melancholic crooning complemented with bright backing vocals from the band. The track is mainly piano driven but its the warm, shambolic horns that are the highlight of this song.
Lead singer, Berninger said in a statement
“We’re honoured to continue our Thanksgiving tradition with Bob’s Burgers with “Save The Bird,” which was recorded at Public Hi-Fi in Austin and in my secluded dojo in Los Angeles. It’s especially thrilling to have our brass section finally get credit for something. Also, I’d like to thank Tom for doing the dishes.”
