The National are streaming their forthcoming new album 'Trouble Will Find Me' online.

The Brooklyn band don't release their sixth studio LP until May 20, but have now made the record - which is the follow-up to their 2010 album 'High Violet' - available for stream via iTunes.

St Vincent, Sharon Van Etten and Sufjan Stevens will all make appearances on the new record, which was produced by Craig Silvey. 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."

Earlier this month, meanwhile, the band unveiled the video for the track 'Sea Of Love', which is taken from the album. To watch the Sophia Peer-directed clip, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click.
