“I wrote ‘One More Second’ with Matt Sheehy (Lost Lander, EL VY) with the intention for it to be a kind of answer to Dolly Parton’s ‘I Will Always Love You,’ or sort of the other side of that conversation,” Berninger said of the song in a statement. “I just wanted to write one of those classic, simple, desperate love songs that sound great in your car.”

The frontman released the song “One More Second” on Sept. 10, the title track to his solo album in April and “Distant Axis” in July.
