The National’s new album “Trouble Will Find Me” is full of textured, dark tones throughout, but remarkably so on the track “Pink Rabbits.” It’s a no-nonsense, melancholic song made even more so by Matt Berninger’s trademark baritone vocals.

Nashville-based country artist Caitlin Rose showed a different side of the song recently with her cover of “Pink Rabbits,” on which the song’s brooding tones are gone in favor of a pop-country feel.
