French heroes Phoenix have just released their first-ever Christmas single, “Alone on Christmas Day,” via Liberator Music/Glassnote Records. The track – whose sales will support UNICEF – appears in the Netflix original holiday special, A Very Murray Christmas, directed by Sofia Coppola.
The song is a cover of a long-lost Beach Boys holiday track from 1979 that was never formally released. Guesting on the track is the Christmas man himself – Bill Murray – alongside Jason Schwartzman, former Late Show with David Letterman musical director Paul Shaffer (and Artie from Spinal Tap for those playing at home) and New York Dolls’ David Johansen.

A Very Murray Christmas will arrive on Netflix at some point in the next 24 hours…
