Listen: Dashboard Confessional cover The 1975 and Justin Bieber on unexpected EP

Hands down, this is the best thing we can ever remember.

On Thursday, Dashboard Confessional dropped a surprise EP titled Covered and Taped. The extended play features a series of stripped-down covers including The 1975’s “Sex,” Julien Baker’s “Sprained Ankle,” Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself,” and Sorority Noise’s “Using.”
