The National have announced the existence (and the extensive guest list) of Trouble Will Find Me, their new album, and they’ve played a bunch of its songs live. But this morning marks the first time we’ve heard a final studio song from the LP. Its called “Demons,” and it sounds very much like a National song — a moody, slow-building, intricately orchestrated depression-anthem with a deep-baritone Matt Berninger chorus that already sounds pretty indelible on first listen. Listen to the song, paired with time-lapse video of an artist drawing the Trouble Will Find Me cover art, below.
Trouble Will Find Me is out 5/21 on 4AD.
