The National’s Matt Berninger covers The Velvet Underground’s ‘I’m Waiting For The Man’

The National’s Matt Berninger has shared a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “I’m Waiting For The Man.”

The cover is set to appear on an all-star tribute album to The Velvet Underground & Nico called I’ll Be Your Mirror. Matt Berninger’s cover follows the release of Kurt Vile’s rendition of “Run Run Run.” At the end of last year, Berninger covered the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but now we’ve gotten a full studio version.

Released via Consequence, this new track is much shinier than the original Velvet Underground version. The atmospheric cover sees Matt Berninger truly adding his own distinctive twist to the famous track.

Prior to passing away in 2020, legendary producer Hal Willner helmed the tribute album called I’ll Be Your Mirror. Now, Verve Records is releasing the album on September 24th.

I’ll Be Your Mirror is set to feature covers from St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile, and more.

The album features covers of all 11 songs from 1967’s Velvet Underground & Nico. It features covers from R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, and a whole slew of collaborations.
