Phoebe Bridgers Covers The Handsome Family’s “So Much Wine”

Phoebe Bridgers has shared a holiday charity cover for the sixth year running, with proceeds from her rendition of The Handsome Family’s “So Much Wine” to benefit the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Bridgers produced the cover alongside her longtime collaborators Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska, and it features Marshall Vore, Harrison Whitford, Sebastian Steinberg and Paul Mescal, as well as vocals, violin and whistling by Andrew Bird.

Bridgers’ past holiday covers include “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” McCarthy Trenching’s “Christmas Song” with Jackson Browne, Simon & Garfunkel’s “‘7 O’Clock News / Silent Night” with Fiona Apple and The National‘s Matt Berninger, Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December” and, most recently, Tom Waits’ “Day After Tomorrow.”

The indie-rock breakout has shared new music only sparingly in 2022. In the spring, she released a song called “Sidelines” for Hulu’s Conversations with Friends, her only proper new material of the year, and in the summer, she covered The Carpenters’ “Goodbye to Love” for Minions: The Rise of Gru. Last month, she and Bird collaborated on a musical interpretation of Emily Dickinson’s poem “I felt a Funeral, in my Brain.”

Currently winding down her Punisher world tour, Bridgers will play in Mexico, New Zealand and Australia over the next few months. In spring 2023, she’ll support Taylor Swift at a series of stadium shows in Nashville; Philadelphia; Foxborough, Massachusetts; and East Rutherford, New Jersey. Hope you got tickets!
