“Christmas Day”

    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward’s holiday album as She & Him, A Very She & Him Christmas, might have dropped last month, but Merge is making sure it says on our radar as the season approaches. They have issued the record’s second track, “Christmas Day,” as the new single. It’s a fully fleshed-out take on the holiday staple, which takes on a new life in the hands of Deschanel and Ward. Especially warming in the instrumentation that builds into a chamber-pop vibe made for listening by a warm fire with a mug full of hot chocolate. Come on, how else are you supposed to properly enjoy this? You can stream “Christmas Day” below.
