Following the release of Bleachers' excellent 2014 debut album 'Strange Desire', they got some pals together to record covers of each of the tracks, releasing the compilation as 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 2'. Follow-up album 'Gone Now' dropped in 2017, and the band are repeating the trick for a limited edition vinyl series - sadly all four releases are sold out already. However, thanks to frontman Jack Antonoff's encouragement, you can listen to the debut 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 3' release, featuring Mitski, below.

This opening release from the new series features an experimental new track from Bleachers entitled 'Mickey Mantle Comes Alive', alongside a cover of 2017 album track 'Let's Get Married' from rising star Mitski. (Who appeared on Rajan FG's top albums of 2018 list.) With the original track featuring vocals from Lena Dunham and , a lead female vocal on 'Let's Get Married' seems like an appropriate next step and Mitski's slowed version heightens the emotive lyrics in stunning fashion.

It'll be a tough one to top this ethereal re-imagining of 'Let's Get Married' but the remaining 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 3' 7 inch vinyl releases will see Muna, Julien Baker, and Ani DeFranco unveil their takes on Bleachers tracks. We're also intrigued to see some of the artwork on the releases, created by actress Alia Shawkat, best known from her iconic role as Maeby in 'Arrested Development'.
