Singer/songwriter Phoebe Bridgers has released “Garden Song”, the track accompanied by a video directed by Bridgers’ brother Jackson Bridgers. The song is now available Dead Oceans. “Garden Song,” is Bridgers’ first new solo material since her Strangers In The Alps LP. Bridgers will spend Spring 2020 touring Japan, Australia and New Zealand (with The National) and North America (with The 1975).

It’s been a busy couple of years for Bridgers, In September 2017, she released her debut album Stranger In The Alps. A European tour with Conor Oberst led to the creation of Better Oblivion Community Center. Prior to that, Bridgers recorded and toured with another collaborative outfit – boygenius – a trio formed with the musicians Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker. Most recently, Bridgers dueted with The National’s Matt Berninger on his debut solo single “Walking On A String” and united with Berninger and Fiona Apple for a charity Christmas single: a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “7 O’Clock News/ Silent Night” to benefit Planned Parenthood.

“Garden Song” was recorded at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California and produced by Bridgers and her Stranger In The Alps producers/collaborators Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska. For the video, Bridgers asked her younger brother Jackson to film her smoking a bong and to then “surprise” her with what happens next. For a non-smoker, the effect was particularly strong and the resulting video captures Bridgers being weirded out by various furry monsters and – at one point – the comedian/author Tig Notaro in a monk’s costume.
