    The National have returned with their first new song since their 2013 album Trouble Will Find Me. Entitled “Sunshine On My Back”, the track is available to purchase on iTunes and streaming below.

    At the moment, the origin of the song remains unclear, but based on the band’s past trajectory of a new album every three years, we can probably expect more details soon enough.

    Update: According to a fan newsletter, the song is a leftover from the sessions for Trouble Will Find Me. It features vocals from Sharon Van Etten and comes free with any purchase/rental of the band’s Mistaken For Strangers documentary via the official website.
