Listen: Bill Murray and Phoenix team up for “Alone on Christmas Day”

The band and ever-quirky star are joined by Jason Schwartzman, Paul Shaffer, and Buster Pointdexter in this holiday single

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!
