Phoebe Bridgers has shared her cover of Merle Haggard’s If We Make It Through December, keeping with her annual tradition of releasing a charity track for the holidays.
The beautiful piano-led rendition was produced by Tony Berg, Ethan Gruska and Bridgers, with the singers vulnerable and sombre vocals accompanied by Gruska’s delicate piano performance. Proceeds from sales and streams from the release will go directly to Downtown Women’s Center, an organisation in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.
The holiday single follows the release of Bridgers latest EP, Copycat Killer a collaboration with Grammy-winning arranger and string player Rob Moose. Bridgers released her acclaimed sophomore album earlier this year, cementing her place as one of the most captivating songwriters of her generation.
