专辑名称：Trouble Will Find Me
拥有一张经典作品的音乐人不少，但是像The National这样张张都稳定出彩并且超越前作的则寥寥无几，这也在过去十年内为他们积累了越来越多的人气和当今独立音乐大哥大团体的地位。尽管The National的作品都是偏慢热型，但是他们加入4AD以后的作品更突显出向主流迈进的潜质。新专辑《Trouble Will Find Me》的基调尽管和之前的作品相差并不大，但是在编曲上算是他们最干净的一张，很多繁琐的细节被去掉，转而突显主唱Matt Berninger的情感诠释。他们过往的主题均偏向于存在主义哲学，带着对社会忧虑的反思，上张加入4AD的首张作品是对社会黑暗面的精致剖析，这张新作则转向另一个话题：“当我们不断向前迈进时，何时才是我们需要休息的时刻？”
The National have announced details of their sixth studio album: Trouble Will Find Me is out on May 20 via 4AD (May 21 in North America). The album was recorded at Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY, and was self-produced, with mixing by Craig Silvey, Peter Katis, and Marcus Paquin. That's the artwork above. The album will be released digitally, on CD, 180gm vinyl, and in a limited edition deluxe boxed vinyl set. It follows 2010's High Violet.
Aaron Dessner, the band's guitarist, said "our ideas would immediately click with each other. It's free-wheeling again. The songs on one level are our most complex, and on another they're our most simple and human. It just feels like we've embraced the chemistry we have."
Check out the tracklist below, followed by the National's current touring schedule, and videos of the band performing new songs at December's ATP festival. The National are also the subject of a forthcoming documentary by Matt's brother, Tom Berninger.
