The National have shared "Light Years", the second single from their highly-anticipated ninth album I Am Easy To Find.

Arriving after last month's "You Had Your Soul With You", "Light Years" lands with another accompanying visual from their 24-minute short film directed by Mike Mills and starring Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider, Ex Machina).

Their upcoming follow-up to 2017's Sleep Well Beast features contributions from Sharon Van Etten, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Lisa Hannigan, Mina Tindle, and more.

I Am Easy To Find was mostly recorded at Long Pond, Hudson Valley, New York, with other sessions taking place across multiple continents, including cities such as Paris, Berlin, Cincinnati, Austin, Dublin, Brooklyn and more.

"Light Years" is out now. I Am Easy To Find arrives 17 May via 4AD. The National will play a handful of intimate shows amongst their busy festival season, including one at London's Royal Festival Hall on 18 April. Find out more.
