Serpentine Prison

    Matt Berninger Serpentine Prison CD      Matt Berningers Serpentine Prison, produced by famed Memphis multi-instrumentalist Booker T. Jones, will be released via Book Records, a new imprint formed by Berninger and Jones in conjunction with Concord Records/Caroline Australia. The album features contributions from a wide array of notable artists, including Matt Barrick (The Walkmen, Jonathan Fire*Eater), Andrew Bird, Mike Brewer, Hayden Desser, Scott Devendorf (The National), Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Lenny Kravitz), Booker T. Jones, Teddy Jones, Brent Knopf (EL VY, Menomena), Ben Lanz (The National, Beirut), Walter Martin (The Walkmen, Jonathan Fire*Eater), Sean O'Brien, Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan), Kyle Resnick (The National, Beirut), Matt Sheehy (EL VY, Lost Lander) and Harrison Whitford (Phoebe Bridgers). Additional production on the album was provided by Sean OBrien. Berninger recently debuted the albums title track alongside a video directed, shot and edited by Tom Berninger and Chris Sgroi, with Pitchfork raving that producer and famed multi-instrumentalist Booker T. Jones surrounds Berninger with ornamental instrumentation, allowing gently picked guitar and funereal horns to provide the backdrop for his dark ruminations. Sparse organ notes make the tale feel more immediate; its like hearing a longtime denizen of a backroom bar muttering to the strains of a country ballad on the jukebox, while Stereogum notes that the style will be familiar and pleasing to fans of [Berningers] main band, particularly the rootsy, less ornately produced sound of their early records. Berninger also recently premiered the album track Distant Axis (watch/share the video, directed by both Matt and Tom Berninger with Chris Sgroi), hailed by Brooklyn Vegan for its trademark melancholic Matt Berninger songwriting style but over a more jangly, breezy, acoustic backdrop than we usually hear from The National. Boing Boing adds that the track is stunningly beautiful. Of the forthcoming records origins, Berninger explains, I sent [friend and collaborator Booker T. Jones] a few rough demos of originals that I had started working on with some old friends, including the songs Serpentine Prison and Distant Axis. Booker responded to those demos right away and encouraged me to keep writing and digging deeper into that stuff. Six months later we had twelve originals and seven covers. Everyone I had been working with on these songs came to Venice, CA, and we recorded it all in 14 days. In addition to his duties as frontman of acclaimed rock group The National, with whom he won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album for 2017s Sleep Well Beast, Berninger also collaborated with Brent Knopf (Ramona Falls, Menomena) under the moniker El Vy for the 2015 release Return to the Moon. In 2019 Berninger appeared in Between Two Ferns: The Movie and teamed up with Phoebe Bridgers to contribute the song Walking on a String to the films soundtrack
