 Το συγκρότημα επίσης, μοιράστηκε το πρώτο single από το άλμπουμ, "Tropic Morning News". Εν μέρει ηχογραφημένο ζωντανά στο Αμβούργο, το τραγούδι συνδυάζει τους ήρεμους και παράλληλα κινητικούς ρυθμούς του με ένα πλούσιο αλλά διακριτικό μεγαλείο που επιτεύχθηκε μέσω της δουλειάς του Bryce Dessner με τη Σύγχρονη Ορχήστρα του Λονδίνου. «Όταν ο Matt ήρθε με αυτό το τραγούδι στα βάθη της κατάθλιψής του, ένιωσα πως ήταν ένα σημείο καμπής για εμάς», λέει ο Aaron Dessner. «Δίνει το ύφος του Dylan στους στίχους του και είναι τόσο διασκεδαστικό να το παίζεις. Νοιώσαμε πως ξαφνικά σαν να ξαναζωντανεύουν όλα».

Today, The National has announced the release of its ninth studio album, First Two Pages of
Frankenstein, due April 28, 2023 via 4AD. Anchored by evocative melodies and an enthralling
lyrical narrative, First Two Pages of Frankenstein signals a new chapter in the band’s beloved
discography. The 11-song album was produced by The National at Long Pond Studios in
upstate New York and features guest appearances by Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers and Sufjan
Stevens. Pre-order for the album is available now HERE and at americanmary.com.
After two back-to-back albums and several busy years of touring, First Two Pages of
Frankenstein was initially stalled while lead singer Matt Berninger navigated, “a very dark spot
where I couldn’t come up with lyrics or melodies at all. Even though we’d always been anxious
whenever we were working on a record, this was the first time it ever felt like maybe things
really had come to an end.” Instead, The National “managed to come back together and
approach everything from a different angle, and because of that we arrived at what feels like a
new era for the band,” according to guitarist/pianist Bryce Dessner, whose bandmates also
include his brother Aaron (guitar/piano/bass) as well as brothers Scott Devendorf (bass, guitar)
and Bryan Devendorf (drums).

The band has also shared the first single off the album, the deceptively upbeat “Tropic Morning
News.” Partly recorded live in Hamburg, the song merges its mercurial textures and kinetic
rhythms with a lush yet subtle grandeur achieved through Bryce Dessner’s work with the
London Contemporary Orchestra. “When Matt came in with that song in the depths of his
depression, it felt like a turning point for us,” says Aaron Dessner. “It’s almost Dylan-esque in its
lyrics and it’s so much fun to play; everything suddenly felt like it was coming alive again.”
Co-written with Berninger’s wife Carin Besser, “Tropic Morning News” takes its title from a
phrase Besser invented to describe the regrettably routine practice of doomscrolling. “The idea
of referring to the darkness of the news in such a light way unlocked something in me,” says
Berninger. “It became a song about having a hard time expressing yourself, and trying to
connect with someone when the noise of the world is drowning out any potential for
conversation.”
First Two Pages of Frankenstein channels the group’s revitalized chemistry into a body of work
that beautifully balances elegant musicality with The National’s more idiosyncratic impulses.
Tracks such as “Grease in Your Hair” and “Ice Machines” were road-tested in 2022 before they
were recorded, allowing the band to hone the material in real time (another song, “Weird
Goodbyes” featuring Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, was released as a standalone track last August).
“To me the power of this record has to do with the intentionality and structure of the music
meeting with a lot of accidental magic,” says Aaron Dessner.
The band has also today announced 2023 tour dates including a show at NYC’s Madison
Square Garden with very special guest Patti Smith and her band. Other shows feature opening
sets from Soccer Mommy, The Beths and Bartees Strange. Tickets go on sale Friday, January
27th at 10:00AM local time. Ticket info can be found at AmericanMary.com.
Formed in New York in 1999, The National’s last four albums have all been in the Top 5 in the
UK charts, with 2017’s Grammy award-winning (for Best Alternative Album) Sleep Well Beast
hitting Number 1. In the US, The National have scored five top 10 albums on The Billboard 200.
