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.”
