Video: Matt Berninger Jams With Pete Holmes
The National's Matt Berninger stopped by The Pete Holmes Show for an impromptu songwriting session with the host. Following a brief interview, Holmes and Berninger set out on their quest to write a pop song in the vein of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." In the end, the duo landed on "Yeti, Get Ready," a harrowing tale about a threesome with, you guessed it, a yeti. This brings me to my next point: Yeti's are greatly undervalued in the songwriting process, but that's another topic for another day.
"Yeti, Get Ready" has all the elements to be a great pop song. It references Cincinnati, chili, sex and has a chorus that's "erotic while still relatable to the tween market." Check it out below.
