Phoebe Bridgers has released a cover of the late John Prine’s “Summers End” as part of Spotify’s Singles series. The studio rendition features backing vocals from Alabama singer-songwriter Maria Taylor.

As part of the Singles package, Bridgers also shared a new version of her Punisher track “Kyoto” featuring vocals with singer-songwriter Jackson Browne. You can hear both new tracks below.

This marks Bridgers’ second time contributing to Spotify Singles, following her 2018 cover of the Cure’s “It’s Friday, I’m in Love.” Her “Summers End” cover also serves as her entry in a series of weekly Singles covers that the streaming platform will be releasing in the lead-up to the 63rd Grammy Awards on Sunday, March 14th. Bridgers is nominated in four categories: Best Rock Performance for “Kyoto,” Best Rock Song for “Kyoto,” Best Alternative Music Album for Punisher, and Best New Artist, for which Prine was also nominated in 1972.

Last month, Bridgers made her Saturday Night Live debut with a performance that ended in an onstage guitar smash. She also teamed up with Charlie Hickey for his new song “Ten Feet Tall,” and joined her Boygenius collaborators Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker on the single “Favor,” from Baker’s new album Little Oblivions.
