The National premiered the first single from the upcoming album “Trouble Will Find Me” on BBC 6Music this morning. The song, “Demons,” is just as depressing and beautiful as you’ve come to expect from the Brooklyn band.
A gorgeous time lapse video compliments the brooding vocals from lead vocalist, Matt Berninger. Last week we compiled six (which totals half of the new album) live recordings of the National’s new material. Fans eager enough to sit through cell phone videos can also catch the quintet at Red Rocks on Sept. 17 with Local Natives. Interesting side note is that the National’s Aaron Dessner produced the Local Natives’ latest album “Hummingbird.”
Listen to the new National single below.
