The NATIONAL – ” Eucalyptus “

Posted: March 22, 2023 in MUSIC

The National have shared another new song from their upcoming album, “First Two Pages of Frankenstein”. “Eucalyptus” comes with a music video directed by Chris Sgroi. The visual was shot at Long Pond by Sgroi and Matt Berninger’s brother, Tom.

In a press statement, Matt Berninger said of the new single: “‘Eucalyptus’ is about a couple splitting up their possessions after a breakup—like, ‘What are we going to do with the spring water we get delivered, what’s going to happen to all these plants?’ It’s about all those little things you end up having to think about when you’ve become so connected to someone.”

“First Two Pages of Frankenstein” is the band’s ninth studio album. The National have previously unveiled the singles “New Order T-Shirt” and “Tropic Morning News,” which was co-written with lead singer Matt Berninger’s wife, Carin Besser. The band recently performed the latter song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The National will embark on a lengthy tour in support of the album this spring, traveling across North America and Europe. The band will stay on the road on through to October. Openers across the run include Patti Smith, Soccer Mommy, the Beths, and Bartees Strange.

“First Two Pages of Frankenstein” is The National’s ninth studio album. This 11-song collection signals a new chapter in the band’s discography. Anchored by evocative melodies and an enthralling lyrical narrative, “First Two Pages of Frankenstein” finds The National sounding more creatively energized than ever and poised to earn them even more fans. The album was produced by the band at Long Pond Studios in upstate New York and features guest appearances by Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers and Sufjan Stevens.
