Los Angeles singer/songwriter Phoebe Bridgers drew some attention back in January for her single "Smoke Signals" and in 2015 also released a three-song single, Killer, produced by Ryan Adams. The 22-year-old released her debut album, Stranger in the Alps, in September via Dead Oceans. Now she has shared a cover of the Christmas classic "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The original was written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and was first sung by Judy Garland in the 1944 musical Meet Me in St. Louis. The artwork to Bridgers' cover features ghosts in front of a Christmas tree (Stranger in the Alps' cover also featured a ghost). Listen below.

Pick up Under the Radar's current print issue (Issue 62/Fall 2017) to read our exclusive interview with Bridgers and to check out our photo-shoot with her.

Previously Bridgers shared a lyric video for its first single, "Motion Sickness" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for "Motion Sickness." Then she shared the very sad but beautiful "Funeral," in which she laments "Jesus Christ I'm so blue all the time" (it was also one of our Songs of the Week).
