Phoebe Bridgers took over Billie Eilish and we’re not worth it – Up News Info

Phoebe Bridgers delivered a faithful cover of Billie Eilish’s “When The Party’s Over” on the first episode of her new radio show, Saddest Factory Radio.

There have been plenty of covers of “When The Party’s Over” since its release in 2018. Cub Sport, Bring me the horizonand James Blake it all comes to mind as giving memorable versions of the teary-eyed (who reached #8 on the Hottest 100 of 2018).

And after making Bo Burnham’s “That Funny Feeling” his own, Bridgers plays quite carefully and doesn’t touch Billie’s original. It’s moody, focusing on breathy vocals and a spare piano – but come on, it’s Phoebe Bridgers. If anyone understands the weight of a quiet emotional punch, it’s her. Listen below.

Named after Saddest Factory Records, the label she founded in 2020, Saddest Factory Radio is Bridgers’ new monthly show for SiriusXM. The program will include music (obviously) as well as conversations with artists, including Phoebe’s label signers like MUNA, Sloppy Jane and Claud.

Bridgers spoke to rolling stone Last week about the focus of the radio show: “My favorite way to consume music is incidentally – something playing in the grocery store, an opening band I’ve never heard, a college radio while trying to find a signal on a road trip. I hope I can offer something like this to people tuning in.

The cover comes shortly after Phoebe Bridgers was honored as Pioneer of 2021 to Billboard Women In Music Awards. Billie Eilish was named Woman of the Year at the same event in 2019.

Speaking of trophies… Billie Eilish is nominated for Best Song at the 2022 Oscars, which will take place March 28, for her James Bond theme ‘No Time To Die’.

She is currently touring the United States in support of her candid and complex second album. happier than ever (with a little help from Tkay Maidza), and will bring the album Down Under for shows across the country in September.
