Bleachers have shared a cover of The Cars’ “Drive” for their new Live At Electric Lady EP.
Jack Antonoff and co. took part in Spotify’s Live At Electric Lady series, where they performed a whole slew of songs. Bleachers performed a live version of “Chinatown” with Bruce Springsteen and “What’d I Do With All This Faith?” with St. Vincent. The 8-track collection also boasts their new cover of The Cars’ “Drive.”
Bleachers’ take on the 1984 ballad is definitely a must-listen. Antonoff and his band delivered a dreamy rendition of the track, packed with reverb and stunning strings. They definitely add their own twist to the hit classic.

Spotify’s Live At Electric Lady series has been quite popular among big-name artists. Each release in the series features a cover of a song connected to Electric Lady
Back in early October, Faye Webster delivered her own EP, which features a cover of Fleet Foxes’ “If You Need To, Keep Time On Me.” “Recording at Electric Lady Studios was a rare experience, especially because I was able to bring musicians who have been with me since my early days in Athens and Atlanta,” Faye Webster explains. “It was special, and I’m still processing it.”
Toward the end of October, Japanese Breakfast shared a Live At Electric Lady EP as well. It not only featured a slew of Jubilee tracks, but she also covered Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”
“I played a very sloppy basement cover of ‘Say It Ain’t So’ once with my band in college, so it was fun to revisit it from the opposite angle, stripped down with a string quartet,” Japanese Breakfast explains. “Craig Hendrix did the arrangement and Quartet 121 performed the hell out of it.”
