With just over two weeks to go until The National release their new album 'Sleep Well Beast',  the Brooklyn band have unveiled the latest track to be taken from it.

It's called 'Day I Die' and is accompanied by a very cool time-lapse video that is comprised of over 5,000 still photographs taken during one of the band's rehearsals.

With lyrics like "I don't need you/ I don't need you / Besides, I barely ever see you anymore/ And when I do, it feels like you're only halfway there" it sounds like we're in for standard upbeat National fare with the new album.
