The National announced today that their sixth album will be entitled Trouble Will Find Me and will arrive on May 20th via 4AD. The Brooklyn based band self produced the new record, which they recorded at Clubhouse in Rhineback, NY. After touring for almost two years behind High Violet the band planned on taking some time off, but guitarist Aaron Dessner started writing and once the rest of the group heard what he had, they returned to the studio.
In a press release Frontman Matt Berninger writes:
"For the past 10 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 debuted a few of these songs at December's All Tomorrow's Parties festival to rave reviews, check out the tracklisting below.
