The band’s next album — whenever it arrives — will be the follow-up to 2013’s Trouble Will Find MeThe National premiered a new song, “Turtleneck,” at a benefit for Planned Parenthood on January 19.

Vocalist Matt Berninger has described the band’s new album as being about the collapse of relationships, but not exactly his own. “It’s about marriage, and it’s about marriages falling apart,” he told Rolling Stone. “I’m happily married, and but it’s hard, marriage is hard and my wife and I are writing the lyrics together about our own struggles and it’s difficult to write, but it’s saving my marriage.’
