Phoebe Bridgers – “The Gold” (Manchester Orchestra Cover)

Since Phoebe Bridgers released her debut album, Stranger In The Alps, last year, she’s been busy. She’s covered Tom Petty in tribute, taken on a Christmas classic, and joined musicians on-stage for covers of Sheryl Crow and Gillian Welch.

Today, she’s released a studio recording of a cover of Manchester Orchestra’s “The Gold,” off the marquee emo rockers’ 2017 album A Black Mile To The Surface. Her version of the song sounds like tender resignation, turning a track that originally sounded like a match dropped in a forest into something more subtle and shifting. Listen to it and check out Bridgers’ upcoming tour dates below.
