It’s beginning to look a lot like…well, you know what holiday I’m talking about. Should you already be eager to get drunk on eggnog and be filled with yuletide cheer, Sofia Coppola‘s star-studded “A Very Murray Christmas” is on Netflix today. Among the many guest appearances, Phoenix stop by and sing a holiday tune with Bill Murray. If you prefer to skip the tinsel and wrapping paper and just listen to the tune, scroll on below.
The band and actor team up on “Alone On Christmas Day,” which die hard Beach Boys fans may know better as a deep cut rarity. Phoenix give it a crisp pop treatment that is in line with their sound, but with the feel of a Christmas carol, while Jason Schwartzman, Paul Shaffer, and New York Dolls‘ David Johansen (as Buster Poindexter) lend a hand as well. It’s perfectly fine, but if you’re super compelled to own it, the track is available on 7″ and digitally, with all sales going to Unicef. Listen below. [Pitchfork]
