The National have announced details of their seventh album, entitled ‘Sleep Well Beast’. The band first teased the record a few days ago with a cryptic video revealing the album’s title, but no concrete details were given. Now though, full details of the album – due to hit shelves 8th September – have been shared including artwork, track-listing and pre-order options.

In addition to CD and digital options, ‘Sleep Well Beast’ is due to be released in two vinyl configurations, both on coloured wax. Most copies will be on white whilst blue is reserved for Indie Stores only, although you can pre-order both on the band’s webstore. The group have also announced a lengthy tour that will take place from September through to December and sees them take up a four night residency at London’s Eventim Apollo in addition to shows throughout Europe and North America.
