There are few things that could make a song by The National any better. And one of those things on that very short list just so happened to occur this past weekend at the Treasure Island Music Festival in California: the band took to the stage to perform “I Need My Girl” and invited Lauren Mayberry (the jaw-to-the-floor-talented singer for CHVRCHES) up to accompany them.

I’m going to just shut up so you can watch the fan-filmed video below (way to go for holding the camera impeccably still, by the way).

In addition to that killer joint performance, The National is also reportedly working on a new album. The band has been writing recently and currently have about 30 different “sketches” for new songs. Frontman Matt Berninger said “We did a camp-out retreat in New York a couple of months ago, and we’re having another one in LA in a few weeks. We have 30 sketches of songs so far.”

In the meantime, don’t forget to check out Berninger’s other band El Vy (Matt Berninger + ex Menomena band member Brent Knopf) as they prepare to release their debut album later this year. They just put out another new song, “Paul is Alive,” earlier this month.
