In January, the band won their first Grammy for latest album ‘Sleep Well Beast’, with their seventh studio effort being named Best Alternative Album.

They later revealed that they missed the ceremony because they were too busy working on their album’s follow-up.

Aaron Dessner told Pitchfork that a Grammy wasn’t “something we ever thought we would get, or set out to get, really”. He also revealed that the band were tucked away working on new music when they heard the news.

“We were actually upstate at Long Pond, working on music, Matt [Berninger] and Bryce [Dessner] and I,” he said. “It would have been fun to be there, but it was also fun to be up where we made the record. It was just a nice moment sitting by the fire and drinking some wine and talking about it.”
