The National frontman Matt Berninger has long been a devotee of the prestige TV shows out now, and he and his band have contributed to a bunch of them — doing music for Game Of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire and Bob’s Burgers, showing up on The Mindy Project. And now he’ll be part of a new TV show’s entire aesthetic. Along with Joy Williams of the neo-folk duo the Civil Wars, Berninger sings the doom-folk theme song for Turn, a new AMC series about Revolutionary War spies. Check out the opening credits sequence below.
