IN keeping with her annual tradition of releasing a charity track for Christmas, Phoebe Bridgers has shared a cover of Merle Haggard’s ‘If We Make It Through December’.
Accompanied by Ethan Gruska on piano, it’s a beautiful, melancholic rendition of the 1975 track and a fitting end to a tumultuous year. This year, proceeds from sales and streams will go to Downtown Women’s Center, an organisation in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.
Following the release of her acclaimed second solo album ‘Punisher’ earlier this year, Bridgers also unveiled the ‘Copycat Killer’ EP last week, a collaboration with Grammy-winning arranger and string player Rob Moose which featured four new arrangements from ‘Punisher’.
Listen to ‘If We Make It Through December’ below, along with Bridgers’ previous Christmas offerings below.
