On the heels of The National claiming their first #1 at commercial radio on the AAA radio chart with ‘The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness’ in the US, the band has released ‘Carin at the Liquor Store.’ Premiering as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, the track is accompanied by a video directed by Casey Reas, filmed by La Blogothèque and edited by Matthew Miller.

Both songs, along with the previously released ‘Guilty Party’ are off the band’s seventh studio album Sleep Well Beast, out on 8th September via 4AD / Remote Control Records. The album was produced by member Aaron Dessner with co-production by Bryce Dessner and Matt Berninger and recorded at Aaron’s Hudson Valley, NY studio, Long Pond.
The National have announced the opening acts for their mostly sold-out world tour. North American openers include Daughter, Local Natives, This Is The Kit and Adia Victoria. In advance of the tour, The National played Glastonbury in the second to headlining slot on the Pyramid Stage (“Could The National Be Glastonbury’s Next Headliners?” asked the NME), performed two intimate nights in the round at Hudson’s Basilica and will play this week at Haven Festival in Copenhagen.
