All funds raised by the new single from Phoebe Bridgers will go towards a group that supports immigrants, refugees, and low-income workers in Los Angeles.
Boygenius superstar Phoebe Bridgers has shared her third cover single of the year, 'Day After Tomorrow' by Tom Waits.
All proceeds from the release will go to the Local Integration & Family Empowerment Division of the International Institute of Los Angeles, a group that supports immigrants, refugees, and low-income workers in the city.
The track was initially recorded by Waits on his 2004 album Real Gone, described at the time as one of the most political songs of his career.
Earlier this year, Phoebe Bridgers released her version of 'That Funny Feeling' by the comedian Bo Burnham, taken from his acclaimed Netflix special Inside.
In a busy year for the 'Kyoto' singer, she also covered 'Nothing Else Matters' for The Metallica Blacklist. The cover album was created to celebrate 30 years since the release of the metal legends' self-titled album.
The star-studded record featured covers of all of the tracks from the original release, including renditions by Imelda May, Dermot Kennedy, Miley Cryus, Mac DeMarco, Weezer, The Neptunes and many more.
Bridgers was also one of the featured artists on Taylor Swift's re-recording of RED, released in October.
Speaking of her appearance on the song 'Nothing New', she described the experience as like "a dream" to the American magazine Billboard.
"I just am so excited to have people take it at face value the day that it comes out, because I got teary recording it. I just couldn't be more excited."
