The National’s frontman Matt Berninger has revealed in a new interview that the band will head to the studio this October to start working on their seventh studio album.

Speaking to Gigwise, Berninger described the LP as “different” - not only sonically but how it will be written too.

​“We always work on little things and email back and forth,” Berninger said, explaining their decision to all work in the same room again. “We have no idea whether it’s going to work or not, but that’s as far as we’ve got with the new record: trying to work out a plan and a different approach”.

“I think we all feel that if we make another record like we’ve made the last three or four – we don’t need to do that.”

The National released Trouble Will Find Me in May of last year. You can read the full Gigwise interview here.
