Phoebe Bridgers Covers Bright Eyes’ Classic ‘First Day of My Life’

Phoebe Bridgers has covered Bright Eyes’ classic 2005 song ‘First Day of My Life’, taken from the band’s critically acclaimed album I’m Wike Awake It’s Morning. Listen to it below.

The singer-songwriter’s stripped-back rendition is part of music streaming platform Deezer’s Home Sessions, a lockdown-themed session series launched in May dedicated to getting artists to record covers from their home studios during the coronavirus pandemic.

This is not the first time Bridgers, who formed the project Better Oblivion Community Center with Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst in 2018, has covered an Oberst song. Earlier this year, she shared a cover of his song ‘Mamah Borthwick (a Sketch)’ for charity.

Bridgers, who is gearing up for the release of her new album Punisher on June 19th, will be performing a quarantine live show today (June 4th) at 7pm UK time on Saturday (June  6th) for DIYsolation. In response to worldwide protests over the death of George Floyd, the event will also serve as a fundraiser for The Bail Project, which is helping protestors get out of jail. All profits from merchandise sales will also be donated to the organization.
