St Vincent, Sharon Van Etten and Sufjan Stevens are among the guests who appear on The National's forthcoming sixth studio album.

Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry, Doveman and Nona Marie Invie, from US band Dark Dark Dark, also contributed to 'Trouble Will Fine Me', which is out on May 20.

Drummer Bryan Devendorf let slip details of the impressive cast list in an interview with the Gothamist. Speaking about Sufjan Stevens contribution, he said: "There are some drum machines provided by Sufjan Stevens—he did some other things too, but he had this drum machine and he did some cool little parts on that."

He continued: "It's [drum machine] on a bunch [of songs], it's definitely on 'Demons', there's some subtle stuff on 'Pink Rabbits', and definitely on 'I Need My Girl'. But it's not like Daft Punk or anything."

Asked about other contributors, he added: "There are several. I know [Arcade Fire's] Richard Reed Parry did a lot of great stuff. [Doveman] Thomas Bartlett was all over it. There are some great guest vocalists that did really awesome parts: [St. Vincent] Annie Clark, Sharon Van Etten, and Nona Marie Invie, from the band Dark Dark Dark."

'Trouble Will Find Me', produced by Craig Silvey, is the follow-up to 2010's 'High Violet. The US band are promising fans that their new songs will be more "immediate and visceral" than their previous work.
