NEWS: Phoebe Bridgers releases festive song, ‘If We Make It Through December’, a Merle Haggard cover

In keeping with her annual tradition of releasing a charity track for Christmas, Phoebe Bridgers‘ latest song is a cover of Merle Haggard’s ‘If We Make It Through December‘, released on Dead Oceans. 

Produced by Tony Berg, Ethan Gruska and Phoebe, and accompanied solely by Ethan on piano, the haunting and brittle rendition of Haggard’s 1974 track is a fitting end to a volatile year. Last year, Bridgers’ holiday single benefited Planned Parenthood. This year, proceeds from sales and streams of ‘If We Make It Through December‘ will go directly to Downtown Women’s Center, an organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women. Listen here:

Bridgers released an EP ‘Copycat Killer’ – a collaboration with Grammy-winning arranger and string player Rob Moose – last week. Punisher, her second solo album, was released in June.
