    Recorded live at Spotify Studios in New York

    Phoebe Bridgers has covered The Cure‘s 1991 classic ‘Friday I’m In Love’ as part of a new session for Spotify.

    Along with an acoustic version of ‘Scott Street’ from her 2017 album ‘Stranger In The Alps’, the Californian musician reworked ‘Friday I’m In Love’ into a tender, romantic new version.

    Bridgers said of her choice of festive cover: “We played a show together with McCarthy Trenching in Omaha this last year. They named the band after the trenching company owned by Dan’s uncle, so they could sell those T-shirts instead of having to make their own. The first time I heard this song, it hit me like a ton of bricks. A lot of McCarthy Trenching songs do that. It’s not that often that I hear a Christmas song that doesn’t make me want to quit music.”

    Bridgers has spent 2018 as part of boygenius, which also features Julien Baker of Forrister and Lucy Dacus. They released their self-titled EP last month.
