Watch Phoebe Bridgers, Arlo Parks cover Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees”

They also performed Bridgers’ song “Kyoto” together.

Phoebe Bridgers and Arlo Parks have collaborated on a two-song piano session for BBC’s Radio 1, performing Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees” and Bridgers’ own song “Kyoto” in a London church.

The two artists had been mutual admirers prior to this collaboration. In July, Parks covered Bridgers’ “Moon Song,” and according to NME, Bridgers became such a big fan of Parks that her music was “all I listened to for a couple of weeks.”

“She covered ‘Moon Song’ and I was like, ‘This is the coolest thing ever,’” Bridgers added. “I was in London working on stuff and we went into a church and filmed us covering Radiohead and one of my songs.”


This is not Parks’ first time taking a crack at a Radiohead song—earlier this year, she put her own spin on “Creep” for a short film. It’s one of the tracks the London singer-songwriter has released this year, including “Eugene,” her breakout track “Black Dog” and her latest single “Hurt.”

On the other hand, Bridgers released her sophomore album Punisher, which “Kyoto” is a single from. “I Know the End,” “I See You” and “Garden Song” also appear on the record.
