The National

Cherry Tree EP

4AD

Released: 26th February 2021

12" EP£13.99 Buy Now In Stock. Dispatched tomorrow.


Released a year before The National broke through with their third album ‘Alligator’, 2004’s ‘Cherry Tree’ EP is a thrilling record which - thanks to its collection of delicate ballads and anthemic crowd-pleasers - sums up what they do best in under 30 minutes. Now a firm fan-favourite, among ‘Cherry Tree’’s seven tracks are now National classics ‘About Today’ and ‘All The Wine’, plus a thrilling live version of ‘Murder Me Rachael’ that reminds of the band’s fearsome early live performances. ‘Cherry Tree’ can be seen as the record that marks the moment when The National had truly found themselves, a bridge from what went before to a band ready to conquer the World.

Having been remastered at Abbey Road Studios, these 2021 represses stay faithful to their original artwork while their stunning new masters help make these much-loved records sound as vital as ever, further emphasising the early signs of the sound that would go on to make them one of the fi nest and most beloved alternative bands of their generation.
