Trouble Will Find Me, The Nationalâ€™s new album will be released on 4AD on May 20th. This is the sixth studio album for the Brooklyn band, and follows 2010â€™s critical and commercial success High Violet. The album is the most self-assured collection of songs produced by The National in its 14-year career. In an interview with UKâ€™s UNCUT Magazine, front man Matt Berninger described the songs as more â€œimmediate and visceralâ€ than their previous work. Trouble Will Find Me possesses a directness, a coherency and an approachability that suggests The National are at their most confident.
After a 22-month tour following the release of High Violet the band returned home. Regardless of plans to wait to record new music for another year or two, guitarist Aaron Dessner began working on sketches of new songs that the other members were too inspired by to not fully realise. Matt confesses, â€œFor the past ten years weâ€™d been chasing something, wanting to prove something. And this chase was about trying to disprove our own insecurities. After touring High Violet, I think we felt like weâ€™d finally gotten there. Now we could relaxâ€”not in terms of our own expectations but we didnâ€™t have to prove our identity any longer.â€ The results are simultaneously breakthrough and oddly familiar, the culmination of an artistic journey that has led The National both to a new crest and, somehow, back to their beginningsâ€”when, says Aaron, â€œour ideas would immediately click with each other. Itâ€™s free-wheeling again. The songs on one level are our most complex, and on another theyâ€™re our most simple and human. It just feels like weâ€™ve embraced the chemistry we have.â€ The album was recorded at Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY. Trouble Will Find Me was self-produced and mixed by Craig Silvey with additional mixing from Peter Katis and Marcus Paquin.
