The emotional acoustic track sticks out as a change of pace and dynamics on the record, and when paired with images of the devastation in New Jersey and New York, paired with images of first responders in action and people banding together in the face of tragedy, the effect is haunting. "National Anthem" implies strength in unity, and this video shows how strangers have come together to power through difficult times.
