The National's Matt Berninger and Phoebe Bridgers Collaborated on a New Song from 'Between Two Ferns: The Movie'
They recorded and performed a track called "Walking on a String" for the Netflix film
Published Sep 20, 2019The National's Matt Berninger has enlisted Phoebe Bridgers for a new tune that appears in Netflix's newly released Zach Galifianakis film Between Two Ferns: The Movie.
The song is titled "Walking on a String," and it was commissioned by the film's director Scott Aukerman. He gave Berninger carte blanche to create whatever he wanted with whomever he wanted, as long as the result would fit into a Midwestern bar scene.
The duet with Bridgers was recorded with Walter Martin and Matt Barrick of the Walkmen, and produced by Bridgers, Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska.
The performance that appears in the film was shot at Oh Grady's bar in the San Fernando Valley in California.
You can catch their performance in the film, which arrived on Netflix today. Dead Oceans will officially release the track on October 17.
