A few days after we had the pleasure of experiencing new material from by US indie rock institution THE NATIONAL in the form of a special showcase in Berlin, the group shares Demons, a first track from the upcoming longplayer Trouble Will Find Me, with us. The follow-up to 2010’s criticly well received High Violet includes thirteen new songs from the band around Matt Berninger and will be released on May 20 via 4AD.

The singer on the new record: “For the past 10 years we’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 we’d finally gotten there. Now we could relax – not in terms of our own expectations but we didn’t have to prove our identity any longer.” Check out the fancy illustration video which features the creation of the new THE NATIONAL artwork.
