The Cranberries’ “Dreams” is one of those undying tracks that musicians just ❤ to cover. Japanese Breakfast, aka Michelle Zauner, isn’t any different. Earlier this week, the indie musician used her Spotify Singles session to record a live cover of the song.

It isn’t the first time she’s took on “Dreams,” though. The track has featured in many of her gigs, but here we finally have a polished cut. Listen to the cover, along with a live performance of “Road Head,” here:
