Matt Berninger & Andrew Bird – “A Lyke Wake Dirge”

Matt Berninger

Matt Berninger, the deep-groaning frontman for the National, has contributed music to just about every even vaguely prestigious TV show currently on the air, and he’s just added another one to his growing list. Together with singer/songwriter/elite whistler Andrew Bird, he’s recorded a version of the traditional English folk song “A Lyke Wake Dirge” for Turn, AMC’s Revolutionary War spy drama. The Bird/Berninger version of the song is a heavy, brooding, pretty thing, and you can hear it below.
