The National have shared a new preview of their upcoming album, ‘First Two Pages of Frankenstein’.
‘Your Mind Is Not Your Friend’ – which features Phoebe Bridgers – follows the release of ‘Eucalyptus’, ‘New Order T-Shirt’ and ‘Tropic Morning News’.
“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.”
‘First Two Pages of Frankenstein’ is set to be released on 28th April.
