Phoebe Bridgers, one of the most celebrated indie/rock singer/songwriters of the past few years, will play a set from her apartment on Friday, April 10 at 4 p.m. EDT via Pitchfork, she announced on Instagram:

had this idea to play a show but instead of a stage it’s my apartment and instead of a crowd it’s the internet
live on @pitchfork on friday

In doing so, she joins the growing list of entertainers staging at-home performances in the age of the coronavirus pandemic.

Bridgers, whose 2017 solo debut album Stranger in the Alps earned universal acclaim due to its lyrics, emotional themes of depression and mental health and tender, heartbreaking compositions, has been releasing new music lately.

A month ago, Bridgers released a video for “Garden Song,” a preview of an expected upcoming record.

Bridgers also turned up with her band mates in boygenius (Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus) in a collaboration with Paramire vocalist Hayley Williams in Williams’ new song “Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris”:

Williams also posted an acoustic cover of Bridgers’ “Smoke Signals” in a video uploaded to Instagram this week:

Phoebe Bridgers’ Stranger in the Alps record, it ought to be pointed out, is a fantastic listen for these confusing times. The vulnerability and delicacy of each track, Bridgers’ haunting vocal effects and the whole overall feel of the record cathartic, despite its thematic darkness.

Bridgers also appears on “Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America,” a resonant new song from Manchester pop/rock band The 1975, which was premiered recently to mostly rapturous reception among the indie/pop community:

Bridgers was supposed to have a support slot on the 1975’s North American spring tour, but iit as postponed due to the coronavirus, and the band has not yet announced new dates.
