A brand new studio album from The National is slated for a May release on 4AD. This forthcoming release is follow up to the critically acclaimed High Violet (2010), which brought the band global critical and commercial success.  People Magazine described the album as “stellar, moody atmospherics.” and Rolling Stone called it “a seductive collection of subtly surging anti-anthems, with evocative lyrics about the terrors and unexpected joys of adult life.”
