The National release their highly anticipated seventh album, Sleep Well Beast, on September 8. So far we've heard "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness," "Guilty Party," and "Carin at the Liquor Store" from the new album, and now The National have shared a fourth track, "The Day I Die." "The Day I Die" is classic National but with more driving drums and pronounced guitar riffs than most of their recent material. Watch the song's video below.

The band have also announced an intimate release show happening at NYC's Bowery Ballroom (9/8) the day the album comes out. They'll be playing the new album in full, and tickets will be given away to select SiriusXM subscribers. The set will also air live on SiriusXMU Channel 35, as well as on the SiriusXM app and on siriusm.com, at 7 PM Eastern. That'll follow a week-long National takeover on SiriusXMU. Starting Monday (9/4), SiriusXMU will air exclusive interviews with the band and play songs from their new album.

The National will also perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the day before the Bowery Ballroom show, and they're also playing the album in full for NPR First Listen Live in Philly on Tuesday (9/5). That'll stream live at NPR.org/music. In July, they played the new album in full at two performances at Basilica Hudson

The National's proper tour includes a much larger NYC show on October 6 at Forest Hills Stadium with Daughter. Tickets are on still available (we're also giving away a pair). Updated tour dates are listed below.

The National have a history of playing intimate NYC shows around the release of new albums; they played Mercury Lounge, Sycamore, and Public Assembly to celebrate the release of 2013's Trouble Will Find Me (ahead of a much larger Barclays Center show). For 2010's High Violet, they opened a small temporary venue next to Other Music, the High Violet Annex, and played a set (along with a bunch of guests).
