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'
'Hard To Find'
