The National are teasing fans with a 9 second clip of their new song "Guilty Party." Sleep Well Beast, their new album, will be released in September 2017 and they've been taunting fans about it with short clips on Social Media. The band have also released their first single off the album "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness," which you can listen to below.
The National Tease New Song "Guilty Party"
The latest teaser arrived June 27th and it's pretty awesome...as far as 9 second clips go. We've got some rolling skies, a house in the corner that hints at their new logo with some visuals thrown onto it. Instrumentally, there's some percussion and an electronic sound for maybe a second or two. Check it out:
So while that's pretty exciting and all, 9 seconds just isn't enough don't you think? So how about something more?

BIGSOUND is one of Australia’s biggest music festivals, and the 2017 event is set to be one of the best in the event’s 16-year history. More than 60 artists and speakers will take to the stage at 17 venues over four days in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley from September 5–8.
It’s not just the artist line-up that’s exciting; the festival is packed with a stellar list of speakers, A&R reps and talent scouts from all around the globe. Quentin Tarantino’s music supervisor Mary Ramos – responsible for iconic soundtracks including Pulp Fiction and From Dusk Till Dawn – will be in attendance, alongside American publicist Adel Hattem (BIGSOUND 2014 alumni and Flume’s South American promotional representative), and many more. Australian icons Tina Arena and Archie Roach have been announced as the first keynote speakers on this year’s line-up.
A panel of international delegates will face the tricky task of determining winners of the $100,000 Levi’s Music Prize – the largest music prize pool in Australian history. The prize serves to provide up-and-coming artists with the financial support they need to enable them to pursue a successful international trajectory.
"The Levi’s Music Prize creates an important new link in the support chain, enabling artists to capitalise on the opportunities created by showcasing in front of over a hundred international industry players at BIGSOUND,” QMusic Executive Officer Joel Edmonson said, “This partnership with the Levi’s brand is a game-changer for Australian music export.”
Tickets are available through the BIGSOUND website here, starting from AUD$45 for a single-night pass.
The current line-up is already bursting at the seams with talented acts, with more names to be announced in the coming months:
Alex The Astronaut
