Watch The National’s Matt Berninger and Andrew Bird cover Lou Reed’s ‘Perfect Day’

This version features absolutely no Boyzone or Heather Small. Promise.
The National’s Matt Berninger and Andrew Bird have covered Lou Reed’s ‘Perfect Day’ as part of a stripped back living room set.

The performance was part of a series Live From the Great Room Bird started earlier in the summer, where he invites other musicians to perform an acoustic set with him. Got to keep busy somehow, right?

You can check out the set with the National frontman – also including the band’s ‘Pink Rabbits’, Andrew Bird’s ‘Heretics’ and original Fiona Apple duet ‘Left Handed Kisses’ – below.
