Ah glorious news guys. The National have finally revealed that their new album is titled Trouble Will Find Me. It’s their 6th album, and it will be released May 20 via 4AD. They self-produced the album and recorded it at Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, New York.
From the sound of it, it sounds like this album will be one of the purest, most truthful albums that they’ve released to date. Here’s what Matt Berninger had to say:
For the past ten years we’d been chasing something, wanting to prove something. And this chase was about trying to disprove our own insecurities. After touring High Violet, I think we felt like we’d finally gotten there. Now we could relax—not in terms of our own expectations but we didn’t have to prove our identity any longer.
The band also has a documentary on the way, titled Mistaken For Strangers. It was directed by Matt’s brother Tom, and will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 17. It showcases the bands journey on their biggest tour yet.
