The National released their last album, ‘I Am Easy To Find’, back in 2019, with NME calling it “lush, profound and experimental” in a four-star review.
Since then, frontman Matt Berninger has released his debut solo album, 2020’s ‘Serpentine Prison’, while songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Dessner worked with Taylor Swift on her pair of 2020 lockdown albums, ‘folklore’ and ‘evermore’.
Earlier this year, The National released remastered versions of their first two albums – 2001’s self-titled debut and 2003 follow-up ‘Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers’ – to mark 20 years as a band.
Regarding new music, Aaron Dessner said last December that the band are “starting to talk about” their next steps.
