"Two thousand and seventeen"





"Another year gets away, another summer of love..."


The National's Aaron Dessner: "There were long stretches where we wouldn't even be thinking about when we were finishing this record. It allowed for different kinds of experiments to happen... This time, we weren't so interested in constructing a polished or elaborately tightly-knit kind of record. We allowed ourselves to have more sounds that are just hanging out there in the mist."
