New Music: Ryan Adams – “Streets of Philadelphia” (Bruce Springsteen Cover)

For reasons that remain somewhat opaque, Friday is 1994 Day at BBC Radio 6. To celebrate, they brought in Ryan Adams to perform an acoustic cover of a ’94 classic, Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia.” (Adams, by the way, formed his alt-country band Whiskeytown in 1994.)

Ryan Adams’ new album Prisoner is out now. Hear his version of “Streets of Philadelphia” and compare it to the original below.
