hear The 1975 & Phoebe Bridgers duet on new song “Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America”
As mentioned, Phoebe Bridgers is scheduled to open The 1975's North American tour (if it happens) and she appears on a song off their upcoming album, and today that song has been released. It's called "Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America," and Phoebe's contribution isn't just a backing vocal role or anything; this song is a full-fledged duet between Phoebe and The 1975's Matty Healy, and it's done in a hushed, intimate acoustic style that's closer to Phoebe's music than The 1975's usual work. It's great stuff -- listen below.
The 1975 are also one of the many bands/artists who delayed their new album due to coronavirus. Notes on a Conditional Form now comes out May 22 via Dirty Hit/Interscope.
In other Phoebe Bridgers news, she recently released her own new song "Garden Song," sang on a new Hayley Williams song (alongside her boygenius bandmates Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus), covered Conor Oberst (to help promote Bootleg Theater's fundraiser), and made a self-isolation playlist. Ben Gibbard also covered her during one of his recent livestreams.
