Phoebe Bridgers is continuing her streak of releasing holiday songs, this time delivering a modern take on Simon & Garfunkel's "7 O'Clock News / Silent Night."
Fiona Apple is featured on the track, joining Bridgers on vocals. The song also features a super depressing, modern-day newscast read by the National frontman Matt Berninger, who recently collaborated with Bridgers on a track for Between Two Ferns: The Movie.
"Happy Holidays to everyone whose family has been literally or figuratively torn apart by Donald Trump," Bridgers said in a statement. "And to my racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, hypocritical family members, fuck you. Thanks Fiona, Matt, Simon, and Garfunkel."
The track is out today via Dead Oceans, and 100 percent of the profits from the single will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
