Phoebe Bridgers has been tapped by rock band The National for their new song, “Your Mind Is Not Your Friend.” The track arrives as the second single from the band’s forthcoming ninth studio album First Two Pages of Frankenstein, slated for release on April 28.

“Your Mind Is Not Your Friend” debuts along with an official music video directed by Bridgers’ brother, Jackson. It also stars Matt Berninger’s brother, Tom.

“Don’t you understand? / Your mind is not your friend again,” Bridgers sings with Berninger. “It takes you by the hand / And leaves you nowhere.”

In a statement about the track, The National frontman shared that the project was inspired by his reading of Frankenstein.

“The book starts off with the narrator on a voyage near the Arctic Circle, and that image of being adrift helped me to write about feeling disconnected and lost and lacking in purpose,” he said. “Once I started confronting that strange, blurry panic of not having ideas, everything began to crack open a bit.”

Stream “Your Mind Is Not Your Friend” and watch the music video above.
