The National have shared another teaser track from their upcoming record, check out 'Hairpin Turns'

The National have shared a new track from their upcoming eighth studio album.

'Hairpin Turns' is taken from ‘I Am Easy To Find’, which will be released on 17th May via 4AD, and has already been preceded by lead single ‘You Had Your Soul With You’ and 'Light Years'.

Director Mike Mills says: “The video is a very simple portrait of the band (and the friends who helped make the song) and the song itself: You see all the instruments that make up the song in isolation, even hear them recorded live on set over the album version, kind of like showing you the tracks that make up the song.

"And you see everyone who contributed alone, including Gail Ann Dorsey, Pauline Delasser (aka Mina Tindle) and Kate Stables - but your mind puts them together. The dancer Sharon Eyal is sort of a continuation of Alicia Vikander’s character from the film I Am Easy To Find. We thought of her as Alicia’s unconscious, or her shadow self - that has her own life in this space.”

A companion short film with the same name, starring Alicia Vikander, will also be released with music by The National and inspired by the album.
