Watch Ryan Adams Cover Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets Of Philadelphia”
BBC Radio 6 is celebrating the year 1994 on Friday, and in anticipation of the day’s festivities, they’ve recruited Ryan Adams to cover Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets Of Philadelphia,” one of the year’s most iconic singles. Adams strips down the original’s synth-wave balladry to a bare acoustic-whisper, resembling something that could have seamlessly appeared on his recent studio album, Prisoner. Adams covered this song at a show in London recently, but you can hear his full in-studio rendition of it below.
Prisoner is out now via Pax Am.
