On May 17 The National will release their 9th studio album I Am Easy To Find. The first single off the album is called You Had Your Soul With You and it features vocals from David Bowie bassist Gail Ann Dorsey. The band will be hitting the road in support of the album with bands Courtney Barnett and Alvvays.
Ex-New Order bass player, Peter Hook, auctioned of a variety of memorabilia at an auction this past week. In this auction, Hook has originally intended on selling letters between Ian Curtis and his former girlfriend Annik Honoré. Just prior to the event, he changed his mind and withdrew the submissions. Members of New Order were not happy about this decision and we quite pleased that Hook ultimately changed his mind.
