Hear the National’s Gorgeous Catching Fire Soundtrack Song, ‘Lean’

Bryce Dessner (L) and Matt Berninger of The National perform at the Opening Night After Party and Performance during the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival on April 17, 2013 in New York City.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is almost here and it seems like every day we're getting something new from it. Yesterday we saw the first clip and now we have the National's song from the soundtrack, which is as beautiful as it is mumble-y. Entitled "Lean," it suggests that in between fighting for her people, Katniss will have time to sip a sad drink and reflect in a modestly hip South Brooklyn bar.
