A few months ago, Phoebe Bridgers performed John Prine’s “Summer’s End” on Instagram to pay tribute to the legendary songwriter, who passed away after a battle with COVID-19. Now, Bridgers has shared a studio recording of the track.
Bridgers’ rendition is beautiful and empathetic, with a full, intricate instrumental line that allows Bridgers’ emotional vocal lines to shine. With reverb-heavy guitars, soft keys, and hushed vocal harmonies, Bridgers’ cover is a powerful tribute to an outstanding artist.
