I've been looking forward to this one for a long time. The National have confirmed a release date for their new album titled, High Violet this May 11th on 4AD. The bands 5th LP, is said to be edgier than it's predecessor, 2007's brilliant, The Boxer.
As soon as we get a confirmed tracklist, we'll let you know.
