Published Jun 02, 2015It's been almost a year since Bleachers released the album Strange Desire, and now the fun. member also known as Jack Antonoff has rolled out an EP for the cut "Like a River Runs." This short collection includes a cover by Sia.
While the original version of "Like a River Runs" is a rousing pop anthem, Sia turns it into a solemn piano made up of swooping strings, sustained piano chords and impassioned vocals. This mournful presentation puts a very different spin on the refrain about a "the rhythm of a wild heart."
Hear it below. This cover comes on the heels of Bleachers remix of Sia's song "Big Girls Cry."
Bleachers' Like a River Runs EP also includes a couple other versions of the title song (a reworking by Antonoff and a live rendition) plus a 15-minute conversation with a dream specialist.
