It was part of a BBC Radio 6 Music special

Ryan Adams has covered Bruce Springsteen‘s song “Streets Of Philadelphia” for BBC Radio 6 Music.

The timing of the release of Adams’ cover is particularly apt, given that the 89th Academy Awards took place in LA on Sunday.

The cover was recently recorded as part of BBC Radio 6 Music’s upcoming celebration of the year 1994 – which will be broadcast on Friday (March 3) – with Adams taking on Springsteen’s track from the Oscar-winning film Philadelphia, which although released in 1993 won the Oscar for Best Original Song at the 1994 ceremony.
