The National played two songs from their forthcoming sixth studio album 'Trouble Will Find Me' on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night (April 25).

The Brooklyn band performed 'Sea Of Love' and a web exclusive of 'I Need My Girl' on the programme – scroll down to watch footage of both.

As previously reported, St Vincent, Sharon Van Etten and Sufjan Stevens will all make appearances on the new album which was produced by Craig Silvey. The follow-up to 2010’s 'High Violet', the record is due for release on May 20 via 4AD.

Matt Berninger recently revealed to NME the album is influenced by a preoccupation with death. "It’s a record about getting older, and all the fascinations and headaches that go with that," he said. "But it’s not grim, honestly! It’s actually pretty fun."

The tracklisting for ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ is:

'I Should Live In Salt'
'Don't Swallow The Cap'
'Sea Of Love'
'This Is The Last Time'
'I Need My Girl'
'Pink Rabbits'
'Hard To Find'

The National will play six gigs in the UK in November. The dates are as follows:

Belfast Odyssey Arena (November 9)
Dublin O2 Arena (10)
Manchester O2 Apollo (11, 12)
London Alexandra Palace (13, 14)
