The National aren’t strangers to creating art in unconventional ways - like playing one of their songs for six hours straight in a museum. Matt Berninger and Aaron Dessner discuss their most ambitious project yet, I Am Easy to Find; an album AND short film made in collaboration with director Mike Mills, and perform with guest vocalists on the next World Cafe.

Check out this great music coming up for you this week on World Cafe:
