Matt Berninger of The National released his debut solo album, “Serpentine Prison”, last October via Book, Berninger’s new imprint with Concord. Today he announced a new deluxe edition of the album that includes six extra bonus tracks (four covers and two originals) and shared one of those extra tracks, “Let It Be,” which is an original song and not a Beatles cover. This solemn retrospective track marks a new venture for the rock artist as he explores the development and evolution of a friendship. The deluxe edition of Berninger’s Serpentine Prison will be available on March 12th digitally and March 21th, physically. Featuring six bonus tracks, including “Let It Be” and an unnamed second original track Berninger has included covers of Eddie Floyd’s “Big Bird”, Morphine’s “In Spite Of Me,” Bettye Swan’s “Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye” and the Velvet Underground’s “European Son”.

The deluxe edition is due out digitally March 12th. 

Previously Berninger shared the album’s title track, “Serpentine Prison,” via a video for it. Then he shared another song from it, “Distant Axis,” via a video for it. Then he shared another song from it, “One More Second,”. Then he shared a remix of “One More Second” by Baltimore four-piece Future Islands. Booker T. Jones produced the album “Serpentine Prison”, with additional production by Sean O’Brien. In addition to the release of Serpentine Prison, 2020 saw Berninger collaborating with a whole host of industry talent, from Taylor Swift on her Evermore track “Coney Island” and Australian singer-songwriter Julia Stone on the St. Vincent– produced “We All Have,” which will feature on her upcoming album Sixty Summers. As well as joining forces with synth-pop outfit Future Islands for a remix of his single “One More Second.”

The album is dedicated to Berninger’s grandmother Elaine and his college professor Gordon Salchow.
