Phoebe Bridgers : “So Much Wine”

Phoebe Bridgers looks like she has won the “Christmas covers” battle already this year with a quite beautiful cover of The Handsome Family’s classic “So Much Wine” (replete with equally beautiful artwork.) In addition it features Marshall Vore, Harrison Whitford, Sebastian Steinberg, Paul Mescal and has Andrew Bird on vocals and violin whilst expertly channlleing Roger Whittaker style whistling.

Proceeds from the track will be going to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, which is one of the few federally qualified health centres with providers who specialise in substance abuse treatment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and people living with HIV. The centre is also the world’s largest LGBT nonprofit, assisting tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ people each month with vital and life-saving services, including youth and senior housing, legal assistance, and affirming, life-saving healthcare.

The Christmas cover has become an annual tradition for Bridgers. She has previously shared covers of Tom Waits’ “Day After Tomorrow,” Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “‘7 O’Clock News / Silent Night” with Fiona Apple and The National‘s Matt Berninger, and McCarthy Trenching’s “Christmas Song” with Jackson Browne, with all proceeds going to organisations doing essential community work.

Phoebe is currently winding down her Punisher global tour – with shows upcoming in Mexico, New Zealand and Australia. She’ll join Taylor Swift on some stadium dates in Spring 2023.
