Combining the richly haunting tones of a church organ with the artist’s ethereal vocals, Hadreas has brought Cohen’s sparkling track Bird On The Wire into a new era. “If I could play this cover anywhere, I think I’d want to play in a big church with a big pipe organ, or if we could somehow get the pipe organ into like a deep dark cave,” Hadreas explained before the performance.
