Two Tiffanys celebrating what they love by giving it a stage and using their voices to spread the word.


Phoenix – “Alone on Christmas Day” (ft Bill Murray)

The French rock band Phoenix have returned by covering an unreleased Beach Boys holiday track, called “Alone on Christmas Day”, and they performed it live on the Netflix original holiday special, “A Very Murray Christmas“, directed by Sofia Coppola. The song features a little vocal help from Bill Murray (he’s hands-down the billest, as you all should know!), as well as actor Jason Schwartzman on drums, singer/actor Paul Shaffer (formerly David Letterman’s band leader) on piano, and David Johansen (of the New York Dolls) shaking a percussion instrument. It’s a nice little jazz-pop Christmas song, with a hint of comedic relief, that will surely get you in the spirit. Stream the song below!

Also, all profits from this song will go directly to UNICEF. You can get the 7″ vinyl on the Phoenix website right here, or digitally on the sites listed at the bottom. Listen now!
