The Nationals’ Matt Berninger says new album will be a huge departure

The National have admitted their new album will be a huge departure from 2013’s ‘Trouble Will Find Me’.

The band told NME they have gone electronic for their next record. “We’re playing together in a room, which means we’re jamming more,” explained frontman Matt Berninger. “But it’s not a jam record at all – the songs are much more like weird, math-y, electronic-y stuff.”

He added: “A lot of songs are going in completely different directions. But that’s a really fun place to be. We’re in the middle of the wilderness, in a rainforest full of really fun noises.”
