Phoebe Bridgers joins Storefront Church to cover Low's "Words"

Storefront Church, the project of LA's Lukas Frank, has recruited Phoebe Bridgers to cover Low's 1994 track "Words".

"Words" is the opener of Low's 1994 album I Could Live In Hope, and following the passing of Low's Mimi Parker last month, Storefront Church has collaborated with his childhood friend Phoebe Bridgers on a cover of the song, which is co-produced by Lukas Frank and Waylon Rector.

The cover also features Spoon’s Alex Fischel on piano, Daniel Rhine on bass, and Cynthia Tolson, who arranged and performed strings.

Stereogum reports that Frank says of the cover, "Our cover of Low’s song, "Words", is out today. In the wake of Mimi’s passing, I’d like to dedicate this to her. Low’s music has been incredibly useful to me; it’s like an antidote to anxiety, with Mimi’s voice at the heart of it—relieving, cathartic and honest. This cover features Phoebe, who I’ve known since we were little kids. I couldn’t be more grateful for her contribution and support, both now and over the years. My co-producer Waylon is also someone I’ve known for longer than I haven’t, but this is our first time officially producing something together and I’m proud of the result."

Last month Jeff Tweedy paid tribute to Mimi Parker with cover of Low and Dirty Three's "I Hear... Goodnight".

Storefront Church's cover of "Words" featuring Phoebe Bridgers is out now.
