The National share new track, 'Day I Die'

The National have shared a new song from upcoming album, ‘Sleep Well Beast.’

The track, entitled ‘Day I Die,’ is the fourth song to be unveiled from the band’s highly anticipated seventh full-length release.

A video for ‘Day I Die’ has also been released in anticipation of the new album. Directed by contemporary artist Casey Reas, the video shows a day in the life of The National as they undertake the daily grind of performing and touring.

Reas said of the video: “Graham MacIndoe captured eighteen time-lapse photo series during rehearsals at Le Centquatre in June 2017 in Paris. Hours of rehearsal are compressed into a few minutes. Over five thousand of these photographs were brought together to make the final video. I wrote custom software to collage multiple photographs together and to compile them into videos. A flickering colour layer abstracted from broadcast television signals augments the black and white footage. The images here are played back at 12fps, near the threshold of the persistence of vision.”

The National will embark on an extensive worldwide tour to promote ‘Sleep Well Beast.’ The band visited the UK in June to appear at Glastonbury, with their performance lauded by critics.

‘Sleep Well Beast’ is released on 8th September via 4AD.
