Now, posters have surfaced, which feature the album’s title and release date. The poster features a faded grey-scale image of the band working in a remote studio. The same image now appears on the band’s website.

This record will be The National’s highly anticipated follow-up to the 2013 Trouble Will Find Me and 2015’s A Lot of Sorrow, a collaboration with Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson.
