The National to Begin Recording Soon

In a new interview with Pitchfork, The National mention that they are set to begin recording their new album soon.

Dessner said of the studio, “We need a new home because everybody is scattered,” since frontman Matt Berninger now lives in Los Angeles and Bryce splits his time between the Catskills and Paris. He adds that he’s “been really, really working hard on the National stuff now, so that’s mainly, almost every day,” and that they will “do the whole record there, because it’ll just be fun and a good feeling.”
