The day has arrived: The National have released the follow-up to 2013's Trouble Will Find Me, before embarking on a world tour that is set to kick off next week. Sleep Well Beast is the band's seventh studio album and includes the previously-shared 'Carin t the Liquor Store', 'Guilty Party', 'Day I Die', and 'The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness'. You can stream it now below via Apple Music.

This is what we thought of the album: "Sleep Well Beast evinces the band puttering and probing uncharted styles, but it also defers to an indelible Nationalness; that heady concoction that’s numinous and beautiful, gothic and tenacious, and so agreeably sad."
