Always one for a great album title (see 2008’s This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That – the most useful album title to reference if you ever need to up your word count), Marnie Stern has announced her follow up to her 2010 self-titled album. The Chronicles of Marnia is said to be less “nutso” and will be released via Kill Rock Stars on March 19th (that’s the album art you see above this text). Ahead of that date, you can hear the first track, “Year Of the Glad,” below, along with the album’s tracklisting.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
