    On Election Day, Phoebe Bridgers made a promise to fans: if Donald Trump were to lose, she’d release a cover of Goo Goo Dolls’ ’90s rock radio classic “Iris”. While Trump himself remains in denial, Bridgers has now delivered the goods. Even more exciting, she’s found a running mate in Maggie Rogers.

    Bridgers and Rogers’ collaborative cover of “Iris” is available as a pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp. Proceeds from the song go towards Fair Fight, a voting-rights and advocacy organization led by Stacey Abrams.

    Earlier this week, Bridgers announced a new EP called Copycat Killer, featuring orchestral reworkings of tracks from her brilliant sophomore LP Punisher.

    Rogers’ debut full-length, Heard It in a Past Life, was one of our favorite albums of 2019.
