As music fans—and dare we say it, connoisseurs—each whisper of new music is somewhat thrilling. And now, the latest musical act to tease new music is the Ohio-hailing band The National.

The National appears to be teasing a new song, titled “Weird Goodbyes,” which will feature “Skinny Love” band Bon Iver. The buzz around “Weird Goodbyes” first began to increase as fans discovered posters advertising the song and the special feature, with early sightings of the posters coming from Brooklyn, New York.

“Weird Goodbyes” has not been kept a complete secret, however. The National has been performing the song live on tour (without Bon Iver) but under the song title “Bathwater (Mount Auburn).” The song was first played at a gig in Pamplona, Spain, in late May and has reportedly been played at several shows since.

So, while we eagerly await more news of new music, check out the remaining tour dates for The National below.
