The new recording of Bridger’s version of Prine’s song, Summer’s End, was broadcast as part of SiriumXM’s Sirius XMU sessions. Hear it below:
Bridgers originally performed the cover live on Pitchfork’s Instagram page, during her stream that took place shortly after Prine’s death on 7 April.
In our interview with Bridgers, she spoke candidly about how she approached keeping her creative momentum rolling for her recently-released second record Punisher, saying “I’ll never let myself plagiarise or do something that sounds exactly like something else, so I guess I just trust in that process. And for that reason, I take longer than most people to make stuff, because I’ll write a song and then six months later, it’s super different. The song Kyoto was a fucking ballad! I just like writing stuff and then fucking it up.”
