woke up today a lil heavy. didn’t know why, just some days are like that. but then realized i am inextricably connected to my friend @lindseybyrnes who’s sweet father just passed away. one of her favs is Phoebe Bridgers so this self-serenade is actually for her since i can’t hang with her or hug her tight. check on your friends and send them your love. just because we are all isolated right now doesn’t mean we aren’t as close. our connection to each other defies space and time. ps @_fake_nudes_ im sorry for butchering your beautiful guitar parts. and also, this is just a perfect song.
Elsewhere in the video’s caption, the musician dedicated the “self-serenade” cover to her friend Lindsey whose father recently passed away. “One of her favs is Phoebe Bridgers,” she wrote.
Going on to say that she is currently unable to “hang with her or hug her tight”, Williams urged her followers to check in on their friends during the coronavirus crisis “and send them your love”.
“Just because we are all isolated right now doesn’t mean we aren’t as close,” she added. “Our connection to each other defies space and time.”
This comes after Hayley Williams shared a workout video set to the tune of her latest single ‘Over Yet’ on YouTube. “Here’s an exercise routine so short you don’t even need to put your hair up in pony tail,” she told her followers.
