Fans of The National get hyped because late last night they finally revealed details about their long-awaited seventh studio album. It's entitled Sleep Well Beast, and according to the press release sent out last night the album is set to come out Sept. 8 via 4AD. To go along with their new album The National announced a world tour, which will take place this fall.
The National did more than just announce the album title and release date. They also released a music video for their new single, "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness." Fans can watch the visually trippy music video above.
The album Sleep Well Beast was recorded in band member Aaron Dessner's New York studio, as well as in Paris, Los Angeles, and Berlin. It features a total of 12 songs, and the complete track list can be viewed below.
Anyone that purchases a ticket to one of The National's North American fall concerts will get the digital version of the band's new album, Sleep Well Beast. Since the album isn't coming out until Sept. 8, the digital copy won't be sent until that day.
