Matt Berninger recently shared more music from his solo work with his fans. The National’s frontman presented a track titled “Let It Be,” which will be part of the deluxe edition of his solo album Serpentine Prison.
Sharing a snippet of the song on social media, Berninger noted that this isn’t a cover of the Beatles’ classic but added that its co-writer Mike Brewer is considered “the Paul McCartney of southern Ohio.”
“Let It Be” is a ballad that’s easy on the ear and grows bolder as it progresses. It’s described as “a new song about an old frenemy” by Berninger. Hear it below.
Matt Berninger released Serpentine Prison, his first solo effort, back in October. The record received favorable reviews but failed to make waves on the commercial field, peaking at No. 161 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. It did, however, reached No.1 in Belgium and Portugal.
The deluxe version of Serpentine Prison is expected to become available in digital form on March 12th, while the vinyl form is already available for preorder. It will contain the original album as well as several new songs and four covers, including Velvet Underground’s “European Son” and Morphine’s “In Spite of Me.”
