National announce new LP plans, Morrissey told to quit touring, Mark Ronson & Macca record together... Music News Daily
Friday, 22 March
The National's new album will be called Trouble Will Find Me, and will be released on 20 May, the band have announced. "For the past ten years we'd been chasing something, wanting to prove something. And this chase was about trying to disprove our own insecurities. After touring High Violet, I think we felt like we'd finally gotten there," explained frontman Matt Berninger of their approach to the record. "Now we could relax - not in terms of our own expectations but we didn't have to prove our identity any longer." Documentary Mistaken For Strangers, shot by the singer's brother, will be screened at the Tribecca Film Festival on 17 April.
Morrissey has been told to retire from touring to protect his health. Doctors have advised the former Smith to quit the road after a series of medical complaints have led him to cancel his US tour, however Moz says he wants to continue. "It's difficult for me [to quit] because, it's very engrained within me," he said. "I know it's the best of life... when you tour and when you make music and when you sing... There is nothing better. Can you think of anything?"
