This new song from Phoebe Bridgers is one of the best things we've heard all year

13 September 2017, 10:25 | Written by Laurence Day

Phoebe Bridgers has unveiled "Funeral", a devastating new song about singing at a funeral "for a kid a year older than me".

It's the third single from Bridgers' upcoming debut Stranger In The Alps following "Motion Sickness" and "Smoke Signals". With every move Bridgers makes she reveals more of her staggering talents; "Funeral"'s power hinges on the singer/songwriter's words and delivery, with desperately affecting lyrics hooking you in in an instant. The beautiful mesh of strings and guitars acts as a perfect foil, refusing to take the spotlight and highlighting the raw emotion.

Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska produced Stranger In The Alps, which follows Bridgers' "Killer" release - a collaboration with Ryan Adams.
