The National Share Video for New Single ‘Eucalyptus’

    The National have released ‘Eucalyptus’, the latest preview of their upcoming album, First Two Pages of Frankenstein. The track is accompanied by a Chris Sgroi-directed video that was shot at Long Pond by Sgroi and Matt Berninger’s brother, Tom. Watch and listen below.

    “Throughout the record there’s a lot of looking into the abyss and wondering if a relationship has run its course,” Matt Berninger explained in a statement. “‘Eucalyptus’ is about a couple splitting up their possessions after a breakup — like, ‘What are we going to do with the spring water we get delivered, what’s going to happen to all these plants?’ It’s about all those little things you end up having to think about when you’ve become so connected to someone.”

    First Two Pages of Frankenstein is slated for release on April 28 via 4AD. So far, it’s been previewed by the singles ‘New Order T-Shirt’ and ‘Tropic Morning News’.
