Phoebe Bridgers has released a cover of Tom Waits’ devastating track, “Georgia Lee.”
Bridgers’ cover of the deeply melancholic track truly does the tale justice. Through Bridgers’ heartbreakingly vulnerable vocal lines, the artist tells the true, tragic tale of an impoverished black girl who was abducted and murdered in 1997 at 12-years-old.
The cover comes as a part of the new tribute compilation produced by Warren Zanes, Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits.
