The National announces its sixth full-length, Trouble Will Find Me

The National has announced a new record, its sixth. Trouble Will Find Me is due out May 21 and is the follow-up to 2010’s excellent High Violet. A tracklist and album art is below.

National completists will also want to check out Mistaken For Strangers, a new documentary about the band that’s set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival April 17. The film, directed by lead singer Matt Berninger’s roadie brother Tom, follows the group on its biggest tour to date, and it reportedly contains nods to both horror and heavy-metal movies.


Speaking of tours, the group also has a bunch of dates coming up, including stops at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. (It's also rumored to play Lollapalooza.) A full list of confirmed dates is below.
