The National are releasing a new album, Sleep Well Beast, on September 8 via 4AD. Previously the band shared videos for the album's first three singles, "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness," "Guilty Party," and "Carin at the Liquor Store." Now the band have shared another song from the album, "Day I Die," via a video directed by Casey Reas. It is made up of over 5,000 photos of the band captured by photographer Graham MacIndoe while the band were rehearsing in Paris in June. Reas then put the photos together into a time lapse video. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Reas had this to say about the video in a press release: "Graham MacIndoe captured 18 time-lapse photo series during rehearsals at Le Centquatre in June 2017 in Paris. Hours of rehearsal are compressed into a few minutes. Over 5,000 of these photographs were brought together to create the final video. I wrote custom software to collage multiple photographs together and to compile them into videos. A flickering color layer abstracted from broadcast television signals augments the black and white footage. The images are played back at 12fps, near the threshold of the persistence of vision."

Pick up Under the Radar's current print issue (Summer 2017/Issue 61) to read our new interview with The National on Sleep Well Beast.

The National's Aaron Dessner produced Sleep Well Beast, with additional co-production by his brother Bryce Dessner and frontman Matt Berninger. It was recorded at Aaron Dessner's Long Pond studio in Hudson Valley, New York. Additional sessions took place in Berlin, Paris, and Los Angeles. Peter Katis mixed the album.

The National haven't released a new album since 2013's Trouble Will Find Me, although the band's members have kept busy with various side-projects.
