The National have a standing tradition of recording Thanksgiving-themed songs in collaboration with the animated series “Bob’s Burgers.” This year, they’ve done it again. Watch the animated visual for “Save the Bird” from the show’s “Bob’s Buskers” series below. Previous National Thanksgiving songs include “Give It to Teddy,” “Kill the Turkey,” and “Gravy Boat.” Matt Berninger also joined the cast to perform songs from the show during the show’s live tour.
“We’re honored to continue our Thanksgiving tradition with Bob’s Burgers with ‘Save The Bird,’ which was recorded at Public Hi-Fi in Austin and in my secluded dojo in Los Angeles,” Berninger said in a statement. “It’s especially thrilling to have our brass section finally get credit for something. Also, I’d like to thank Tom for doing the dishes.”
