The National are celebrating their album release day with a lyric video for ‘The Alcott (feat. Taylor Swift)’

Their new album ‘First Two Pages of Frankenstein’ is out now.

The National have shared a new lyric video.

The clip is for ‘The Alcott (feat. Taylor Swift)’, which follows on from previous singles ‘Your Mind Is Not Your Friend’ – which features Phoebe Bridgers – plus ‘Eucalyptus’, ‘New Order T-Shirt’ and ‘Tropic Morning News’, all taken from their new album ‘First Two Pages of Frankenstein’.

“When I feel stuck, I’ll often grab a book off the shelf just to get some words in my head, and the first two pages of Frankenstein ended up triggering ‘Your Mind Is Not Your Friend,’” Matt Berninger recalls.

“The book starts off with the narrator on a voyage near the Arctic Circle, and that image of being adrift helped me to write about feeling disconnected and lost and lacking in purpose. Once I started confronting that strange, blurry panic of not having ideas, everything began to crack open a bit.”
