Published Nov 22, 2018In what's becoming something of American Thanksgiving tradition, the National have shared another song for the holiday in collaboration with Bob's Burgers.
For the newly released "Save the Bird," the team behind the hit animated comedy sent the National the lyrics first, leaving the band to pair them with piano, horns and gang vocals. You can hear the results in an animated clip starring the band below.
"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," the band's Matt Berninger said in a statement. "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."
Over the years, the National have contributed Christmas songs, bathroom songs and more Thanksgiving merriment to the show.
