Watch: Matt Berninger shares video for new solo track ‘Distant Axis’

'Serpentine Prison' is set for release on October 2

While gearing up for the release of his new album Serpentine Prison, The National’s Matt Berninger has released a video for his new solo song “Distant Axis.”

“I met Walter Martin fifteen years ago when The National opened for The Walkmen on a tour of shitty clubs in the American Southeast. On that tour I learned a lot about how to be in a band without ruining your life. I also learned a lot about Florida, Tennessee and Georgia,” Berninger explains. “Walt and I have stayed friends and about three years ago we started from a sketch Walt sent me named ‘Savannah.’ I think it’s about falling out of touch with someone or something you once thought would be there forever.”

Serpentine Prison is set for release on October 2nd.
