Phoenix Team Up With Bill Murray for Quirky New Carol, ‘Alone on Christmas Day’

Bill Murray is really getting into the holly jolly holiday spirit with his just-released Netflix Christmas special, and he’s enlisted former SPIN cover stars Phoenix to help him deck the halls. The French band shared a new Christmas carol, a cover of the Beach Boys’ unreleased track “Alone on Christmas Day,” featuring the talents of Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Paul Shaffer, and Buster Poindexter. Though the subject matter is a bit gloomy, it’s a peppy, largely optimistic addition to your holiday playlist. All proceeds from the single will go to UNICEF. The track, and Murray’s Netflix special, A Very Murray Christmas, both drop today, December 4.
