The National: Wake Up Your Saints

Because it’s not enough to buy an album once these days, an expanded version of The National’s High Violet is coming out this week. As explained in the promotional video above, it contains new songs, B-sides, live tracks and that alternate version of Terrible Love.

In a strategic marketing move just in time for the holidays, Black Friday has been dubbed “Violet Friday” by the band, which will make High Violet 2.0 available for just $7.99 at participating stores for one day only.

Check out one of the new songs, Wake Up Your Saints (via Prefix), a rather upbeat (by The National’s standards) track that was left on the cutting-room floor.
