The National are teasing something new for this year. They released a teaser video with snippets of two songs on Friday imbedded over an image that hinted at song titles and collaborators. Not sure of the date but probably Spring.

4/28 release. New tune "Tropic Morning News" out today on your favorite streaming services -- and I like it a lot on first spin.

Tickets for world/NA tour go on sale next Wednesday. No Texas dates as yet.

sorta meh on first listen. its pretty tepid IMO. pretty sure he's still off the drink but i like dark, mopey Matt more. and my favorite part of the national, it being the drums, are definitely not a feature of that first track. I'm sure it'll grow on me, but then i did love the last album too.

That's better than every song on their last album, IMO. 

Really? I thought there were some really terrific songs on the last album. "Rylan" is one of my favorite National songs ever.

I was trying to remember what the last The National album was - it was the one with all the female vocalists. It was fine but didn't really seem like the same band. I don't think I listened through it more than a couple times.

They're never going to be what they were from 2007-2013 and that's okay. They'll definitely need to reearn my interest though and that single isn't doing much for me. I'm sure I'll listen to the new album but I don't expect a whole lot from them anymore. 

Their real fuck up was Trouble Will Find Me being too good to ever follow.

Yeah Rylan was pretty great off of I Am Easy To Find. I liked the album. It was a departure but they had a whole theme going with it and the featured female artists. I saw speculation that Weird Goodbyes not being on the album is because we're probably getting a 2nd album of B-side material later in the year. There was a blurb on their website about Weird Goodbyes only being a digital release for now as it will have a future home on a physical medium later.

I've listened to every National album dozens of times. I listened to that last one once. Just didn't do it for me at all.

wow - that is certainly a take.  trouble will find me is excellent.  i'd agree that it was their last great record, though i have liked the last two plenty.
