The National have marked their return with a new album, film, single and now major tour with some heavy support from Courtney Barnett and Alvvays.

The new record, I Am Easy to Find, will be out May 17 via their label 4AD and features collaborations from the likes of Gail Ann Dorsey, Sharon Van Etten, Lisa Hannigan, Mina Tindle and more.. “Yes, there’s a lot of women singing on this, but it wasn’t because, ‘Oh, let’s have more women’s voices,’” the National’s Matt Berninger said in a statement. “It was more, ‘Let’s have more of a fabric of people’s identities.’ It would have been better to have had other male singers, but my ego wouldn’t let that happen.”

The National’s strong female collaboration will also stretch to the band’s tour with Courtney Barnett and female-fronted band Alvvays being named as the support.

Barnett will feature on The National’s east coast of US and Canada shows with Alvvays coming in for some of the European shows.
