Phoebe Bridgers and Maggie Rogers Share Cover of the Goo Goo Dolls’ ‘Iris’

    On November 3, Phoebe Bridgers tweeted that if Donald Trump lost the US presidential election to Joe Biden, she would cover the Goo Goo Dolls’ 1998 single ‘Iris’. The singer-songwriter has now made good on her promise, enlisting Maggie Rogers to join her. Their rendition is available as a pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp, with proceeds benefitting Fair Fight, a voting-rights and advocacy group led by Stacey Abrams. Check it out below.

    Phoebe Bridgers and Maggie Rogers’ version of ‘Iris’ was co-produced by Tony Berg and Bridgers, engineered and mixed by Joseph Lorge, and mastered by Bob Ludwig. It features a guitar section from Bridgers’ touring guitarist Harrison Whitford, Odessa Jorgensen on violin, as well as additional mandolin by Lorge.

    Earlier this week, Phoebe Bridgers announced a new EP called Copycat Killerout November 20 via Dead Oceans. The project will feature orchestral re-workings of four tracks from her most recent album Punisher: ‘Kyoto’, ‘Savior Complex’, ‘Chinese Satellite’, and the title track. Last month, Bridgers launched her own label, Saddest Factory, which released Claud’s latest single ‘Cold’.
