The National, The Breeders and My Brightest Diamond to record ‘The Long Count’ album

Last year the guitarist twins from The National, Aaron and Bryce Dessner, in collaboration with visual artist Matthew Ritchie, The Breeders‘ Kim and Kelly Deal (also twins), My Brightest Diamond‘s Shara Worden, and the National’s own Matt Berninger all performed with a 12-piece chamber orchestra for a special 3 night show commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music (in New York).

In an interview with Exclaim!, Bryce Dessner says they are working on a recorded version of the show, “We’re planning on recording a record of that at the end of June. It’s like a 70-minute show that’s much more experimental-sounding.” There is also chat of some touring as well.
