The National are releasing the next phase of their musical existence with a new full-length album called Trouble Will Find Me on 4AD Records on May 20/21, and today we get their first single with the song "Demons." The Illustration and video were done by Azar Kazimir and Michelberger Hotel, which portrays the new album cover.
The band is reportedly looking to "possesses a directness, a coherency and an approachability," so it'll be interesting to see how they bring that into their existing sound. Maybe they just want to chill a little bit on the songwriting thing and feeling the need to prove themselves to others:
“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,” said Matt Berninger about how things happened this time around.
