After the success of the last two albums, American indie giants The National are about to publish their new full-lenght work, named Sleep Well Beast, which is scheduled for release on September 8, 2017. The band has just shared a new single from the forthcoming album, Guilty Party, which follows the previous song The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness that was released on last May.
My impression is that both the two songs are absolutely amazing and the new album is going to be a major event of the year. The two tracks also show some clear element of innovation and experimentation, whilst keeping that subtle sense of melancholy that characterized all of their previous works.
