The recording was broadcast on SiriusXM last week for the station’s SiriusXMU Sessions series. Listen to the cover below:
Bridgers has performed a handful of covers this year, including a rendition of Bright Eyes’ ‘First Day of My Life’, a performance of The 1975’s ‘Girls’ and Conor Oberst’s ‘Mamah Borthwick (a Sketch)’ for charity.
The singer’s second studio album, ‘Punisher’ was released earlier this month, a day earlier than its expected release date. NME gave the record a five-star review, labelling it as “atmospheric indie with an undercurrent of anxiety”.
During her cover interview with NME, Bridgers said ‘Punisher’ was released during a time of uncertainty and solitude, which only brings out the album’s themes more.
“On the album I’m grappling a lot with my inability to be grateful for the moment, and this is definitely forcing us to live in the moment,” she explained.
“There is no future to speak of – even though there is, we won’t know what that looks like yet.”
