Jim James covered Dr. Dog’s “Oh My Christmas Tree” during a live session recorded for the Christmas edition of the Spotify Singles series. The My Morning Jacket frontman tackled the title track from the Philadelphia-based band’s 2013 four-track, holiday-themed EP during a session in New York City. Amy Helm and The Wood Brothers, Anderson .Paak, Norah Jones and Jack Johnson are among others who contributed to Spotify Singles: Christmas Collection.

“Everyone knows that sometimes the holidays can be tough. For years now I have found comfort in this song, originally written and performed by one of my favorite songwriters Scott McMicken from Dr. Dog,” James shared on social media. “Since I love to sing along to it on repeat so much every holiday season well I figured I’d try out my own version too. Hope you enjoy and happy holidays.” James is no stranger to holiday music having previously recorded a seven-track EP for iTunes full of Christmas covers, including a take on The Band’s “Christmas Must Be Tonight.” Listen to James’ cover of “Oh My Christmas Tree” below:
