Cover albums are very #ontrend right now following Ryan Adams‘ full-length 1989 cover (and who could forget The Flaming LipsSgt. Pepper’s cover LP? Everyone? Oh.). And now Bleachers will be next in line to see a full album of their material get lovingly recreated. Sort of. Jack Antonoff has gotten some of his pop star friends to cover each track from Strange Desire — some just handled vocals and Antonoff reworked the song, others approached it as a true cover — for a compilation cover version of the album called Terrible Thrills Vol. 2. 

We’ve already heard Sia‘s rendition of “Like A River Runs,” which shows up on this release, and she appears alongside Tinashe, Carly Rae Jepsen, former tour mate Charli XCX, Sara Bareilles and even Brooke Candy.

The album is available on Google Play and can be streamed below, where we’ve also got the full tracklist and Antonoff’s background on the project.
