A new album by The National: Trouble Will Find Me !

Like you may already know, The National belong to the very few music idols of mine. Their songs and lyrics are intertwined with my life and I am able to recall a lot of live situations in which this band’s tunes were my background music. So maybe you can imagine how thrilled I am that their new album Trouble Will Find Me is out now. I already listened to every song of it and have to say that – unsurprisingly – I like it very much. Have a listen yourself:

Music Idols: The National

I think it’s time again to present you one more of my (only few) music idols: The National. But you know what? This band has so much personal meaning for me that I don’t feel like I should tell you here the hard facts – like who they are or where they come from… Just look at their Wikipedia article and you will know it all. Instead, I would like to tell you two scenes I totally link with this band. First, I heard their song Anyones Ghost on permanently repeat modus during a very hard time two summers ago and it helped me enormously to deal with the whole situation. Second, their song Think You Can Wait made me calm down from the very first time on I listened to it. – Thus, with this information in mind it may not be a big surprise that it was the song I chose to hear prior to the defence of my thesis. Yes indeed, the National and especially the baritone voice of singer Matt Berninger are real idols for me!
