Matt Berninger teams up with Phoebe Bridgers for “Walking on a String”

A track from ‘Between Two Ferns: The Movie.’

The National frontman Matt Berninger and Phoebe Bridgers have released a video for “Walking on a String,” a song recorded for Between Two Ferns: The Movie.

In the movie released on Netflix last month, actor/comedian Zach Galifianakis and the crew behind his talkshow Between Two Ferns go across the US in search of high-profile celebrity interviews, eventually landing the likes of Chance the Rapper, Gal Gadot and Keanu Reeves. Berninger and Bridgers add to the long list of cameos in the movie, appearing as singers who perform the song in a nameless bar.

Now, “Walking on a String” has received an official release, including an alternate version of the track with more prominent vocals from Bridgers alongside different electric instrumentation.


The song also got a black-and-white video treatment that showcases the duo recording in the studio as Galifianakis looks on. Watch it below:
