Bleachers released a new EP on Thursday featuring a cover of The Cars‘ 1984 classic “Drive.”
The EP, titled Live at Electric Lady, was mostly was recorded in Studio D of Electric Lady and on top of the studio’s roof during the pandemic.
“At the time it wasn’t safe to be indoors or close to each other we played on the roof – when we could actually be in the same room we played in studio D with our heads on fire,” the band’s frontman Jack Antonoff said.
“I can ask my band all I want to play a take like they may never play again, but it’s gonna sound different when we were actually faced with that reality,” the singer-songwriter and producer added. “These recordings are all one take and captured from those very moments when we didn’t know the next time we would get to play together after these sessions.”
The eight-track EP consists of songs such as “Chinatown” featuring Bruce Springsteen and “What’d I Do With All This Faith?” featuring St. Vincent.
The full album can be played on Spotify.
