The reality is that we are all going to be spending a lot more time at home during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown. Which is why it was very nice of The National singer Matt Berninger to offer up his “Social Distancing Distortion” playlist to help keep us distracted during this unprecedented period of home confinement in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The eclectic 10-song playlist — the first of a planned series — includes a wide range of rock and folk acts, from Nick Drake and The Breeders to Neil Young, Chris Isaak and, yes, Social Distortion.
In an Instagram Story, Berninger explained, “Getting a chance to catch up on so much amazing music. I’m doing a weekly Spotify playlist called Social Distancing Distortion. Swipe to listen, and stay healthy, body and mind.”
Berninger joins a growing roster of acts who are using the time off the road to share their music through live webcast shows and other remote events, with everyone from Miley Cyrus to Neil Young, Yungblud and Keith Urban going virtual to keep their fans entertained.
