Berninger is featured on a new song by Nashville singer-songwriter Caroline Spence called "I Know You Know Me." Released Feb. 4, the ballad has a sweet melancholy tinge to it — something that's become a trademark in Berninger's songs — despite actually being about having someone you fully, deeply see and understand.
In it, Spence and Berninger trade verses on behalf of their characters, acknowledging their places in each others' lives, and the song builds with layered instrumentation. Their exchanges sound like beautiful, gentle love letters, with the overall composition a heartfelt cousin to The Swell Season's 2006 hit "Falling Slowly."
Listen to the song below.
On Feb. 4, Berninger shared the new single. "It was a pleasure to sing with
@carolinespence_ on her new song 'I Know You Know Me,'" he said on Twitter.
