The National is the debut studio album by American indie rock band The National, originally released in October 2001 via Brassland Records.

The National, for those who are just coming in, is comprised of two sets of brothers - Bryce and Aaron Dessner, Scott and Bryan Devendorf - and Matt Berninger (plus shadow member Padma Newsom).

Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2021, The National’s self-titled debut album of sozzled Americana is a thing of beauty, laden with heavy hints that this was a special band in the making.

Their first release, ‘The National’ arrived two years after The National formed, a time when they were juggling band life with needing to hold down full-time jobs. And while nods to the alt. rock artists that inspired them (Pavement, Silver Jews) can be heard, so too are the beginnings of something all their own - Matt Berninger’s stunning and unexpected lyrics being pinned to melodies that stop you in your tracks.

The National marks the starting point for one of the best bands of their generation. A great primer to a great band.

Having been remastered at Abbey Road Studios, these 2021 reissues stay faithful to their original artwork while their stunning new masters help make these much-loved records sound as vital as ever, further emphasising the early signs of the sound that would go on to make them one of the finest and most beloved alternative bands of their generation.

This album is a 2021 reissue on black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and remastered audio, pressed in Europe via 4AD Records.
