Hear Phoenix + Bill Murray’s Festive Cover of the Beach Boys’ ‘Alone on Christmas Day’
Billy Murray’s Christmas special A Very Murray Christmas landed on Netflix today (Dec. 4) along with the featured song “Alone on Christmas Day.” Murray’s castmates Phoenix take the lead on the single, which is a cover of a 1979 unreleased Beach Boys song. Take a listen in the video above.
The French indie-rockers receive accompaniment from Murray, actor Jason Schwartzman, Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer and New York Dolls’ David Johansen (aka Buster Poindexter). You can purchase a digital download of the song at iTunes or Amazon or grab it as a vinyl 7” at Phoenix’s website. All proceeds for the single will go to UNICEF. That’s the single artwork at the bottom of the page.
Phoenix dropped their most recent album Bankrupt! in 2013.
