Brooklyn indie rock veterans The National gave us a preview of their up and coming LP ‘High Violet’ on Jimmy Fallon last month, with a performance of the opening track off the new album, ‘Terrible Lovers’. The album is set to be released on May 11 and you can download a taster here. Vocalist Matt Beringer described the album in an interview with Pitchfork Media as having, ‘a lot of yelling’ but also being ‘easy to drive to’, make of that what you will I suppose. Below is the album artwork for the release which will be the bands fifth album since forming in 1999.
