The National released their excellent new album, Sleep Well Beast, on today via 4AD. Previously the band shared videos for the album's first four singles, "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness," "Guilty Party," "Carin at the Liquor Store," and "Day I Die." Last night the band stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform "Day I Die." Watch the spirited performance below. You can now also stream the whole album below. Plus, The New York Times have a new VR documentary taking you behind the scenes of the making of Sleep Well Beast (check it out at The New York Times website or via their VR app).

Read our rave 9/10 review of Sleep Well Beast.

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.
