The National announce new LP

2017-05-10 by Benjamin Kuettel STAFF | 77 Comments
Indie rock band The National have announced the title of their new album, Sleep Well Beast, which will drop on September 8th on the record label 4AD. This will be their first studio album since Trouble Will Find Me from 2013.

The band had revealed last year that they would be exploring genres like electronica and math rock on their follow-up to Trouble Will Find Me. Leading up to this current announcement, the band's social media accounts posted brief, cryptic teaser trailers featuring new music.

Further album details have yet to be announced, and this article will be updated as new information is revealed.

I saw, and your favorite Kevin Morby is releasing something too. Planetarium should also be sick, Mercury is an amazing song, if I'm getting that title right. The one that sounds like Carrie & Lowell with the three minute instrumental outro.

Song is a 5, album will be a 5

I mean this song is a top 20 National song after one listen already, these boys don't fuck around, if they take an extra year out to do something different think Radiohead rather than Axl Rose

I haven't enjoyed these guys in the past; I still detest Boxer but really enjoy Alligator.
New track is killer however... That guitar lick is to die for.
