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!
