Spiral Stairs is the long-term project of Pavement co-founder Scott Kannberg. He’s releasing a new album, Doris & the Daggers, on March 27 via Nine Mile/Domino. Now he has shared another song from the album, “Exiled Tonight.” It features The National’s Matt Berninger. Listen below via Consequence of Sound (who premiered it).

Kannberg had this to say about the song in a statement to Consequence of Sound: “I tried to sing like Matt Berninger from The National, but of course I couldn’t, so he came and sang it with me. It was the last song I had to finish on the record. I had terrible lyrics and my engineer Dan said, ‘Those suck. Come back with something better.’ Well, that night, I had a dream about Darius and how he was stuck in the afterlife. I think finishing this song was a sign that we could move on. Deep Water!”
