Phoebe Bridgers, has Released a benefit track, a cover of Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December.” The song is available today, via Dead Oceans.
Produced by Tony Berg, Ethan Gruska and Phoebe, and accompanied solely by Ethan on piano, the version 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.
Bridgers released an EP “Copycat Killer” – a collaboration with Grammy-winning arranger and string player Rob Phoebe Bridgers To Release ‘Copycat Killer’ EPMoose – last week. Punisher, her sophomore solo album, was released in June to universal acclaim and has cemented Bridgers’ reputation as one of the most gifted songwriters of her generation.
