On October 30, EL VY—the collaboration between The National’s Matt Berninger and Menomena’s Brent Knopf—will release their debut album, Return to the Moon via 4AD. The duo has already released a few tracks from the album, and today they’ve debuted a new single, titled “Paul Is Alive.” The group shared the new track via a lyric video, directed by Tom Berninger (Matt’s brother), who also directed the documentary Mistaken For Strangers.
