Phoebe Bridgers Shares ‘Christmas Song’ Single Featuring Jackson Browne
Phoebe Bridgers released a new single featuring Jackson Browne, a cover of McCarthy Trenching’s “Christmas Song.” The track follows last year’s release of the holiday classic “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.”
Bridgers is nearing the end of a tour with Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus who she joined this year as one-third of the supergroup boygenius. Bridgers’ shared the following about her recording of “Christmas Song,” which features Browne’s backing vocals:
McCarthy Trenching is singer-songwriter Dan McCarthy’s band. We played a show together in Omaha this last year. They named the band after the trenching company owned by Dan’s uncle so they could sell those t-shirts instead of having to make their own. The first time I heard this song it hit me like a ton of bricks. A lot of McCarthy Trenching songs do that. It’s not that often that I hear a Christmas song that doesn’t make me want to quit music. I played a show in L.A. around the holidays last year where I covered it for the first time. Jackson Browne was there, and he came up to me after the show to tell me how much he loved the song. A couple days later, Dan got a Bandcamp notification on his desktop computer that someone paid 50 bucks for his record and wrote a nice note and signed it Jackson Browne. He thought someone was fucking with him. So when I decided to record a version of the song, I knew who I wanted to sing on it. Plus, I have wanted to make music with Jackson as long as I’ve wanted to make music.
