The National resumed touring last month, giving live debuts to three new songs at the tour’s opening show in Pamplona, Spain on Saturday, May 28.
Images of these songs – “Tropic Morning News (Haversham)”, “Grease In Your Hair (Birdie)” and “Bathwater (Mount Auburn)” – then appeared at a later concert in Paris.
In a social media post shared last month (May 26), The National said they were working on new material. “Rehearsals are underway,” they wrote on Instagram. “It’s great for the seven of us to finally be together in one room working on music that’s both fresh and familiar. Our vemos in Pamplona.
Guitarist Bryce Dessner previously confirmed the band were working on their next album – the sequel to 2019’s ‘I Am Easy To Find’ – although he “wasn’t sure when the new music would be released”. “It’s very exciting: it’s kind of reminiscent of the classic sound of National, which was just the five of us, and there’s a lot of energy in it,” he explained.
“Maybe it’s like coming out of the closed doors of COVID or something? I don’t know. But we’re excited and I think it would be imminent at some point.
