Aaron Dessner added that the band will take a year out once they finish touring 'Trouble Will Find Me'
The National‘s Aaron Dessner has said that the follow-up to this year’s ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ will be “raw” and “simple”.
Speaking to NME, Dessner explained that the band would like their seventh album to be a reaction to their very “detailed” 2012 LP. “We’re actually thinking for the next album we make a very raw, un-produced simple record, that nobody will like!” he said.
He added that song offcuts from the ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ sessions, of which there are around 10, might end up on a new album. “We’ve talked about it,” said Dessner when asked about when they’ll start working on their next LP. “I’m sure that once we’ve done touring we’ll take at least a year away from the band, but I think that we’re also excited about an idea – like, everyone seems interested in making an album a different way. It might mean a more louder, more live record that is less produced and more, just like, raw and shredding.”
The National recently revealed new song ‘Lean’, their contribution to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. Scroll down to hear the song now.
