On Christmas night, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig released footage of a cover of “Little Drummer Boy” featuring members of Haim, according to Stereogum.
Although the video is pretty fuzzy, if you squint you can make out the figures as they sing along to the classic holiday tune. “‘Little Drummer Boy’ is a top 3 Christmas song imho,” Koenig wrote on Instagram. “All you have to give is…a drum solo. You only get one shot. Do not miss your chance to blow.”

a late night jam session in honor of the prince of peace. “Little Drummer Boy” is a top 3 Christmas song imho. imagine that you come to see the messiah and he’s been given all sorts of regal gifts like frankincense and myrrh. All you have to give is…a drum solo. You only get one shot. Do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime. You wail on the snare for a solid 20 minutes. Paradiddles upon paradiddles. You collapse in exhaustion. Did he like it? It’s unclear…until he smiles. You killed it, drummer boy.
