The French band and the one and only Bill Murray have come together to release a Christmas single entitled “Alone on Christmas Day”. Despite the somber subject matter, they manage to put a quirky, upbeat spin on it. Listen above!
This track also features Jason Schwartzman, Paul Shaffer (Letterman’s former musical director) and Buster Pointdexter, and is actually a part of Murray’s Christmas special, A Very Murray Christmas (which is just as star-studded). All proceeds will be donated to Unicef.
The song is actually a cover of an unreleased track from the Beach Boys. Listen here:
Both the track and the Christmas special were released today, December 4. The track was first heard on Beats 1 Radio. Phoenix had an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1, and they revealed that they are currently working on new material in the studio – so we can look forward to that!
