Phoebe Bridgers releases new song in time for Christmas
This follows 2017’s Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and 2018’s bittersweet Christmas Song.
What is Christmas without tradition? The carolling, the cooking, the frenzied, last minute present wrapping at 3am. It comes with the territory, and now it seems that American indie rock singer-songwriter, Phoebe Bridgers, has added her own little custom into the annual festivities with the release of her third Christmas single, 7 O’Clock News/ Silent Night.
Continuing a tradition that began in 2017 with Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Phoebe Bridgers has released a song just in time for Christmas. This recording—7 O’Clock News/ Silent Night—features Fiona Apple, on joint vocals with Bridgers, and Matt Berninger (The National, El Vy) in the role of ‘newscaster.’ Produced by Tony Berg (guitar), Ethan Gruska (keyboards) and Phoebe Bridgers (vocals, guitar) it was recorded at Sound City Studios in the San Fernando Valley. The track is available now via Dead Oceans.
100% of the profits from this recording are being donated to Planned Parenthood, as inspired by the song’s ‘newscaster’ Matt Berninger, co-founder of the 7-inches For Planned Parenthood project. You can purchase the boxset benefiting Planned Parenthood from the “7-Inches for” project by clicking here.
In sharing the track Bridgers includes the following note: “Happy Holidays to everyone whose family has been literally or figuratively torn apart by Donald Trump. And to my racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, hypocritical family members, fuck you. Thanks Fiona, Matt, Simon, and Garfunkel.”
Bridgers recently headlined Mirrors Festival, performing to a sold out crowd at London’s iconic Roundhouse and is headed to Japan and Australia in Spring 2020 to tour with The National. Dates are below:
