HAIM, Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, more to release songs for new ‘Hanukkah+’ compilation

'Hanukkah+' is set for release on November 22

HAIM, Yo La Tengo, the Flaming Lips, and more are contributing new tracks to a Hanukkah compilation called Hanukkah+.

The compilation, which was organized by music supervisor Randall Poster, will see tracks from artists like Jack Black, Holy Ghost!’s Alex Frankel, Adam Green, and more. HAIM is set to release a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “If It Be Your Will” for the album.

Hanukkah+ was inspired by Yo La Tengo’s annual Hanukkah shows. “When our old friend Randy Poster asked us to contribute to an album of Hanukkah songs he was putting together, we were kind of stumped,” Yo La Tengo explains in a statement. “As non-practicing Jews (and non-Jews), truthfully the holiday has little meaning for us (that’s the meta joke behind Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah shows), but we were open to inspiration. We thought maybe another friend, Sam Elwitt, could crack the code, and we think he did a fantastic job with his composition ‘Eight Candles.'”
