Phoebe Bridgers & Courtney Barnett Cover Gillian Welch’s ‘Everything Is Free’
Phoebe Bridgers and Courtney Barnett remotely collaborated on a cover of Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free.” The performance was part of Newport Folk Festival’s Our Voices Together feature film directed by Josh Goleman that premiered last night and benefited the Newport Festivals Foundation.
Welch released “Everything Is Free” on her acclaimed 2001 album, Time (The Revelator). Barnett played electric guitar and sang from her home in Melbourne, Australia while Bridgers recorded her vocal part from her Los Angeles home.
Our Voices Together, which also features Roger Waters and Lucius covering John Prine and many other performances, is available to stream until this evening. Watch Phoebe Bridgers and Courtney Barnett cover Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free” below:https://youtu.be/8gx3lTqBPrI?t=1303
