The National have announced they'll be following up their 2013 LP Trouble Will Find Me with a brand new album this Setepmber.

Sleep Well Beast was produced by Aaron Dessner, with Bryce Dessner and Matt Berninger grabbing co-producer credits. It was mixed by Peter Katis and recorded at Aaron Dessner's Long Pond studio in New York. You can grab it on September 8th via 4AD.

Now that a proper date and title have been unveiled, I guess it's time for some music:

That track is called 'The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness'. It's very nice. As is the Casey Reas-directed video. Check out the tracklist for the album below, along with their forthcoming tour dates (ticket pre-order begins Monday, May 15th with the general sale beginning Friday, May 19th.)
