Phoebe Bridgers Shares Studio Recording of John Prine Cover

Earlier this year, Phoebe Bridgers shared a cover of John Prine’s ‘Summer’s End’ on Instagram following the legendary singer-songwriter’s death in April. Now, she has released a proper studio recording of the song for SiriusXM. Listen to it below.

The new recording, which features more polished production, dreamy guitars, and intricate vocal harmonies, was broadcast on SiriusXM last week as part of the station’s SiriusXMU Sessions series. When she originally performed the track, which is taken from Prine’s 2018 album The Tree of Forgiveness, for Pitchfork, she said: “He’s one of the most important people on the planet to me. I was lucky enough to see him a couple times. This is from his last record. It’s one of my favorite songs ever.”

Recently, Bridgers also covered Bright Eyes’ classic 2005 song ‘First Day of My Life’ for Deezer’s Home Sessions. Earlier this month, she released her sophomore album, Punisher, which we named one of the best albums of the year so far.
