The National have announced that their new Bon Iver collaboration "Weird Goodbyes" will be arriving early next week.

Last weekend some posters teasing "Weird Goodbyes" were spotted around Brooklyn, and this afternoon (18 August) The National announced that the new single, featuring Bon Iver, is landing on Monday (22 August).

"Weird Goodbyes" was previously referred to as "Bathwater (Mount Auburn)", which they've been playing live throughout the summer.

Back in March, Bryce Dessner gave an update on The National's follow-up to 2019's I Am Easy To Find album, saying it "kind of feels back to the classic National sound in a way, which was really just the five of us, and it has a lot of energy in it. Maybe it’s like bursting out of the closed doors of Covid or something? I don’t know."

The National's "Weird Goodbyes" single featuring Bon Iver will be released on Monday (22 August) at 5pm BST.
