AAA’s Hottest Record of the Week: Phoebe Bridgers, Friday I’m In Love (The Cure cover)

Phoebe Bridgers has covered The Cure’s 1991 classic Friday I’m In Love – and it’s AAA’s Hottest Record of the Week.

The Los Angeles singer-songwriter recorded the track as part of a new session for Spotify, along with an acoustic version of Scott Street from her 2017 album Stranger In The Alps.

You can listen to Bridgers’ brilliant reworking of Friday I’m In Love below.

It follows the release of her new Christmas single, which features iconic singer/songwriter Jackson Browne.

Christmas Song is a cover of Dan McCarthy’s band McCarthy Trenching.

Speaking about her choice of festive cover, Bridgers said: “We played a show together with McCarthy Trenching in Omaha this last year.

“They named the band after the trenching company owned by Dan’s uncle, so they could sell those T-shirts instead of having to make their own.

“The first time I heard this song, it hit me like a ton of bricks.

“A lot of McCarthy Trenching songs do that. It’s not that often that I hear a Christmas song that doesn’t make me want to quit music.”
