After Phoebe Bridgers and her fellow boygenius members Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus appeared on Paramore front woman Hayley Williams’ recent single “Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris,” Williams has now shared a solo acoustic video of her covering Bridgers’ “Smoke Signals.”
The soft cover sees Williams staying true to Bridgers’ soft, resonating style, letting her sweet guitar line fall into the background as her silky vocals take the lead.
“Woke up today a lil heavy,” Williams wrote on Instagram. “Didn’t know why, just some days are like that. But then realized I am inextricably connected to my friend [Lindsey Byrnes] who’s sweet father just passed away. One of her favs is Phoebe Bridgers so this self-serenade is actually for her since I can’t hang with her or hug her tight.”

woke up today a lil heavy. didn’t know why, just some days are like that. but then realized i am inextricably connected to my friend @lindseybyrnes who’s sweet father just passed away. one of her favs is Phoebe Bridgers so this self-serenade is actually for her since i can’t hang with her or hug her tight. check on your friends and send them your love. just because we are all isolated right now doesn’t mean we aren’t as close. our connection to each other defies space and time. ps @_fake_nudes_ im sorry for butchering your beautiful guitar parts. and also, this is just a perfect song.
