The National share new single ‘Guilty Party’, from their forthcoming album Sleep Well Beast out 8th September. Watch the accompanying video, directed by Reas, below!
“The video is a dream about memory and the degradation of memory; it’s about distance in time and space,” says Reas. “Time moves forward, but then backward as memory. The image of the two-faced Roman god Janus, who can look into the past and future, is the core visual language.”
Last week in Paris and the UK, The National performed new material off the forthcoming album for audiences for the first time. Portions of their set at Glastonbury can be viewed via BBC here.
