‘So Much Wine’ was produced by Phoebe Bridgers and her longtime collaborators, Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska.
Phoebe Bridgers has shared a cover of The Handsome Family’s ‘So Much Wine’, with proceeds going towards the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
The California organisation is one of the few federally qualified health centres with providers who specialise in substance abuse treatment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and people living with HIV.
The centre is the world’s biggest LGBT nonprofit, assisting tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ people each month with vital and life-saving services, including youth and senior housing, legal assistance, and affirming, life-saving healthcare.
The LA singer-songwriter’s rendition of the 2000 festive song, taken from the band's album In the Air, serves as the latest entry to her growing Christmas catalogue.
The cover also features contributions from Bridgers’ (rumoured) fiancé Paul Mescal, plus Marshall Vore, Harrison Whitford and Sebastian Steinberg. Andrew Bird provides vocals, violin and whistling.
Bridgers has previously released covers of festive classics such as ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, Merle Haggard’s ‘If We Make It Through December’ and Simon & Garfunkel's ‘7 O’Clock News / Silent Night’.
The Grammy nominated 28-year-old is scheduled to embark on a New Zealand and Australian headline tour in early 2023. Bridgers is then set to open for Taylor Swift at select dates of her North American ‘Eras Tour’ in May.
