The National - High Violet

Already one of the most anticipated albums of 2010, The National have revealed the title and release date for their upcoming album. High Violet is due out May 11th in the US. I haven't seen an official track list yet but the cover art is below.

I'm sure many of the albums songs will be played on their current Spring tour, as far as what to expect, lyricist and front man Matt Berninger says
We started out trying to make a fun pop record. I had the word HAPPINESS taped to my wall. We veered off that course immediately. We’ve narrowed it down to about 15 songs now and it’s going to be our best record (one song you can dance to) but it can’t be described as happy.

They recently debuted the opening track Terrible Love on Jimmy Fallon, check it out below.
