The National’s Matt Berninger was the musical guest on last night’s episode of the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He performed a cover of the Velvet Underground’s classic ‘I’m Waiting for the Man’, which Fallon mistakenly described as a song from his debut solo album Serpentine Prison. Watch it below.
Back in 2016, Berninger and Andrew Bird offered their own take on Lou Reed’s ‘Perfect Day’. The National frontman also recorded a cover of ‘European Son’, from 1967’s The Velvet Underground and Nico, for his new LP, which was scrapped on producer Booker T.’s advice.
Serpentine Prison arrived in October. Last month, Future Islands shared a remix of the single ‘One More Second’.
