The National have shared another song and video from their hugely anticipated new album “I Am Easy To Find” due out 17thMay via 4AD Records. The song, “Hairpin Turns,” features Gail Ann Dorsey and Lisa Hannigan, and the video was directed by Mike Mills, who also directed the new album’s accompanying short film. The video splices together performance footage by The National and guest singers Gail Ann Dorsey, Pauline de Lassus (Mina Tindle), and Kate Stables (This Is the Kit) with interpretive dance by Sharon Eyal. “The video is a very simple portrait of the band (and the friends who helped make the song) and the song itself: You see all the instruments that make up the song in isolation, even hear them recorded live on set over the album version, kind of like showing you the tracks that make up the song,” Mills said.

The National have also added an intimate NYC release show happening at iHeartRadio Theater (5/17) the day the album comes out, the whole thing will stream live at iHeartRadio’s YouTube channel on May 17th at 7 PM.
