The National collaborate with Phoebe Bridgers on 'Your Mind Is Not Your Friend'

With their highly-anticipated new album landing later this month, The National have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Your Mind Is Not Your Friend' sees them team up with Phoebe Bridgers for the release, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Eucalyptus', 'New Order T-Shirt', and 'Tropic Morning News' in previewing their new LP 'First Two Pages Of Frankenstein', which is out on the 28th April via 4AD.

Speaking about the song's inspiration, the band's Matt Berninger said, “When I feel stuck, I’ll often grab a book off the shelf just to get some words in my head, and the first two pages of Frankenstein ended up triggering 'Your Mind Is Not Your Friend'. The book starts off with the narrator on a voyage near the Arctic Circle, and that image of being adrift helped me to write about feeling disconnected and lost and lacking in purpose. Once I started confronting that strange, blurry panic of not having ideas, everything began to crack open a bit.”
