The National:have shared another song and video from their anticipated new albumI Am Easy To Find(due 5/17 via 4AD). The song, “Hairpin Turns,” featuresGail Ann DorseyandLisa 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. Watch/listen below.

The band have also added more film screenings in other cities around the world. The previously-announced NYC screening happensMay 7 at BAMand also includes a screening ofMistaken for Strangers(tickets). All dates/cities for screenings are listed on the poster below.
