The National Announce New Tourdates and Album, Can’t Decide on an Album Title

Every time a news story is published about The National’s forthcoming album, due in May on 4AD, it seems apparent that the band is having troubles picking a name for it. Since The National are all about the one-word album titles (see previous albums Alligator and Boxer [TMT Review]), I suggest they break that pattern and go crazy. How about a three-word album title? Or, gasp, why not make it five?! Have fun with this one, dudes.
