A little over a week after posters appeared in Brooklyn teasing a new single from The National featuring Bon Iver, “Weird Goodbyes” has officially arrived. Apparently starting out its life as “Bathwater (Mount Auburn),” the song — which the band debuted during the Paris stop on their European tour in May and has been playing ever since — was renamed and released today. It’s a midtempo but reflective head-nodder, which prompted one YouTube commenter to “bring out those sad dance moves.”
While Bon Iver just wrapped up a North American tour in June and is preparing to head to Europe and the UK in October, The National just finished up their own European swing and are now currently crossing the US on their own North American tour — their first since 2019. You can see the remaining dates below.
