Sia Releases Simmering Cover of Bleachers’ ‘Like a River Runs’

Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers project snuck out a new EP called Like a River Runs on Monday night. It’s full of oddities, including a 15-minute spoken word track called “Dreams Aren’t Random” and a pair of his own alternate versions of the title track, but he managed to get something special to round out the four-track release. SPIN’s 2014 Artist of the Year Sia contributed her own rework of the Strange Desire track, a murky, orchestral cover that drags the song into the Australian songwriter’s sulky and simmering wheelhouse. Check it out below.
