The National: New single! New album! New tour!

The National have been teasing details about a new album over the past few days and the wait is over. And it really has been a wait: the band's last album Trouble Will Find Me came out in 2013!  The name of their next album is Sleep Well Beast and it's coming out on September 8th. They also announced an international tour but alas, Austin isn't on the list (yet). 

But hey, we have a single to hold us over and we can't complain about that. Matt Berninger and Aaron Dessner talked with Pitchfork about the album and said, "The lyrics are direct and kind of intimate. Not all of the songs—I think there are as many silly, dumb, goofy lyrics on this as there usually are. But the serious stuff gets even more serious than usual."
