If you thought that Plants And Animals seemed like practically two different bands from debut Parc Avenue to 2010’s follow-up La La Land, you are not alone. Apparently, the band even realizes this, as the first line of the press release for their newly announced third album, The End Of That, says that the new record looks to bridge this divide.
After preparing for longer than ever to record, the band was actually abel to complete the album faster than any of its predecessors. It was recorded in just two weeks with Lionel Darenne (Feist) at La Frette Studios, outside of Paris. Below we have the tracklisting for the affair, which will be out on February 28th via Secret City, as well as the MP3 of first single “Lightshow.”
The End Of That:
02. The End of That
03. Song for Love
08. Why & Why
09. Control Me
10. No Idea
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
