The National’s Matt Berninger has shared a cover of Tom Petty’s “Only A Broken Heart” with Ronboy.
The lush cover sees Berninger singing over ambient instrumentals alongside some stunning harmonies from Ronboy. Berninger and Ronboy’s cover of “Only A Broken Heart” was recorded with the newly resurrected Resynator synth for a forthcoming documentary called Resynator.
Resynator is “a documentary film-in-progress that shares the unique journey of a daughter connecting with her late father through the resurrection of a synthesizer from the 1970s that he invented,” according to a synopsis.
Listen to Berninger and Ronboy’s cover of “Only A Broken Heart” below.
This cover follows the reles of Grace Potter’s cover of Tom Petty’s “Honey Bee” and Lucius and War On Drugs/Beirut’s Jon Natchez’s cover of Kraftwerk’s “Computer Love,” both recorded for the film.
