Mirah has shared a remastered version and Half Waif cover of “Murphy Bed,” the latest from her recently announced 20th anniversary reissue of You Think It’s Like This But Really It’s Like This. The double LP reissue, available for pre-order now and due July 31st via Double Double Whammy, includes a remastered version of the record as well as a tribute to the album that features covers by Mount Eerie, Half Waif, Hand Habits, Palehound, Shamir, Sad13, Allison Crutchfield and more.
Of the cover, Half Waif’s Nandi Rose said: “It was a huge honor to record a cover for the legendary Mirah in celebration of this 20th anniversary reissue. I chose ‘Murphy Bed’ because I could immediately hear the chorus being reimagined as a more choral-focused arrangement. There’s also something obviously sensual about this song lyrically, so I wanted to play that up with the slow backbeat and just have some fun with it. I’m really grateful to Mirah for her fearless songwriting, and I loved getting to interpret that with my own arrangement.”
