The National går elektroniskt på nästa album

Publicerad: 2 augusti 2016 av Rikard Berg

Uppföljaren till Trouble Will Find Me kommer att gå i en helt ny riktning.

Det senaste året har The National spelat flera nya låtar live, såsom Roman Candle eller St. Vincent-samarbetet Prom Song 13th Century (Frankie & Johnny) så sent som förra veckan. Den kommande skivan sades till en början bli mer rå, men nu verkar soundet ha tagit en annan riktning. I en ny intervju med NME berättar bandet att de nya låtarna lutar åt math och elektroniskt.

We’re playing together in a room, which means we’re jamming more. But it’s not a jam record at all – the songs are much more like weird, math-y, electronic-y stuff. […] A lot of songs are going in completely different directions. But that’s a really fun place to be. We’re in the middle of the wilderness, in a rainforest full of really fun noises.

Sångaren Matt Berninger fortsätter med att säga att de valt att gå åt ett nytt håll av en anledning:

We could probably crank out a great National record in a weekend, but none of us are interested in following up with another record that sounds like ‘Trouble Will Find Me’. That record was a great accomplishment and I’m so proud of it. But even if we could make a record that good and put it out tomorrow, we wouldn’t, because we’ve already made that. We’d rather make a terrible record that opens up new possibilities. It’s going to be great!
