Official 'I Need My Girl' Video, Covers Contest Winner Chosen

Today, Revolt TV's In Harms Way debut the music video for The National’s single 'I Need My Girl'.

Last week on iTunes The National released the single, which came with a b-side cover of the Perfume Genius song 'Learning'. The 'I Need My Girl' video was directed by Sophia Peer, and is now available to watch below or on the band's YouTube channel.

To mark the occasion of the release, the band launched a covers contest for the single, inviting fans to submit videos of themselves covering 'I Need My Girl'.  They are pleased to announce that the winner is Kai Keefe and you can view his version of the song here.

Additionally, last weekend The National performed two sold out shows at Sydney Opera House, the second of which was live-streamed internationally on YouTube.  You can watch the performance back here.  Full tour dates are also below.
