Conor Oberst And Phoebe Bridgers Nail Cover Of The Killers' 'Human': Watch

In January, Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst gave us the collaborative project we didn't know we needed when they surprise-released a self-titled album under the moniker Better Oblivion Community Center. Last week, the duo set out on its first-ever tour and is gifting audiences with a cover we didn't know we needed: Bridgers and Oberst's rendition of The Killers' iconically confusing single, "Human."

BOCC fittingly included the track in their Las Vegas set, which happens to be The Killers' hometown. They stripped down the already soft song, and backed only by guitar switched off verses before coming together during the chorus to ask the age old question: "Are we human, or are we dancer?"

A fan caught the whole performance on video. Watch the footage, and check out a full list of tour dates, below.
