The National’s Matt Berninger Shares New Single ‘One More Second’
The National frontman continues to preview his forthcoming debut solo album, Serpentine Prison with the release of single “One More Second.” Serpentine Prison comes out October 16, a delay of two weeks from the previously announced release date, via Book’s Records/Concord Records.
Berninger tapped Booker T. Jones to produce Serpentine Prison. Contributors to the LP include Jones, Andrew Bird, Scott Devendorf, Gail Ann Dorsey, Walter Martin, Hayden Dessner, Matt Barrick, Mike Brewer, Ben Lanz, Brent Knopf, Mickey Raphael, Harrison Whitford, Matt Sheehy and Sean O’Brien.
“I wrote ‘One More Second’ with Matt Sheehy (Lost Lander, EL VY) with the intention for it to be a kind of answer to Dolly Parton’s ‘I Will Always Love You,’ or sort of the other side of that conversation,” explained Berninger. “I just wanted to write one of those classic, simple, desperate love songs that sound great in your car.”
