Indie starlet Phoebe Bridgers surprised fans this week by re-releasing a fan-favorite deep cut, “Waiting Room,” for purchase on Bandcamp. 100% of the proceeds from the track go to support Music Will’s mission of empowering aspiring artists, providing them with the resources, opportunities, and support they need to pursue their musical dreams.
Written when Bridgers was just 16, the track is one of the oldest of her career and first appeared on a compilation album curated by Lost Ark, a recording studio, in 2015. However, it was recently taken off Spotify, much to the dismay of fans, who coveted “Waiting Room” as one of Bridgers’ best early releases. She even played the track as part of her set on KEXP in 2018 – a testament to its status as a fan favorite.
Phoebe performed the song during her final show supporting Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour at the MetLife Stadium. Many fans were emotional to hear this song once again, and others tuned in through Twitter clips.
