Phoebe Bridgers covers Tom Waits ‘Day After Tomorrow’ with the saddest Christmas choir to ever exist

by Cris


Fresh from the post is Phoebe Bridgers‘ cover of Tom Waits ‘Day After Tomorrow’.

Since 2017, it’s been a yearly tradition for Phoebe Bridgers to drop a Christmas tune every year.

In 2019, she even collaborated with other artists such as Fiona Apple and The National‘s Matt Berninger when she released a politically charged version of Silent Night.

This year, she’s recorded her Christmas release with a couple more friends, with Harrison Whitford, Marshall Vore, Rob Moose and Will Maclellan backing her up and a star-studded choir that includes of Blake Mills, Z Berg, Marcus Mumford, Kaitlyn Dever, Mady Dever, Annie Stela and Emily Kohavi lending a hand.

Dubbed as the saddest Christmas choir to ever exist, they give Waits’ song more of a Christmas flavor, with a sprinking of Silent Night sung hauntingly by a choir and aided by the faint jingle of sleigh bells.

All proceeds from the song will benefit the Local Integration & Family Empowerment Division of the International Institute of Los Angeles, an organization that provides refugees, immigrants, and survivors of human trafficking with the skills, abilities, and resources they need to become self-sufficient and start their new lives in Southern California.
