Phoebe Bridgers has shared a holiday cover of Tom Waits' 2004 song "Day After Tomorrow," the proceeds of which will go to Local Integration & Family Empowerment Division of the International Institute of Los Angeles, which supports immigrants, refugees, and low-income workers in the city. 

Bridgers' cover leans harder into the original's subtle "Silent Night" interpolation with a gentle choir — featuring Blake Mills, Marcus Mumford, Kaitlyn Dever and Harrison Whitford — and some sleigh bells. The whole thing is dressed in Bridgers' signature washes of atmosphere and shifting production. Check it out below.

In past years, Bridgers has shared holiday covers of Merle Haggard's "If We Make It Through December," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and songs by Simon & Garfunkel and McCarthy Trenching.
