Immerse yourself in the captivating melodies and enthralling storytelling of The National's latest album, First Two Pages of Frankenstein, now available online at and in-store at Zhivago Gifts, Galway. This 11-track masterpiece marks an exciting new phase in the band's discography, showcasing their revitalized chemistry and refined musicality.

Produced at Long Pond Studios in upstate New York, First Two Pages of Frankenstein features stellar guest performances by renowned artists such as Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers, and Sufjan Stevens. This album succeeds the 2019 top-five hit, I Am Easy To Find, and highlights the band's triumph over a challenging creative period that almost led to their dissolution.

The album's songs, including "Grease in Your Hair" and "Ice Machines," were perfected during live performances in 2022 before being recorded, providing the band with the opportunity to refine their material. One standout track, "Weird Goodbyes," features a collaboration with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and was released as a standalone single in August.

Taylor Swift joins lead singer Matt Berninger on the mesmerizing duet "The Alcott," continuing her successful series of collaborations with The National members, as seen on her chart-topping albums folklore, evermore, and Aaron Dessner's Big Red Machine project. The poignant track explores the complexities of a couple attempting to rekindle their troubled relationship, offering a narrative that is both emotionally resonant and evocative.

Experience the intentional and structured music combined with the accidental magic of First Two Pages of Frankenstein. Don't miss your chance to own this remarkable album by The National, available for purchase online at and in-store at Zhivago Gifts, Galway.
