Mac DeMarco and Kirin J Callinan team up for ‘The Christmas Song’


The dream team of Mac DeMarco and Kirin J Callinan have an early Christmas gift for all this year, with their cover of ‘The Christmas Song’.

The cover is part of a ten-track compilation titled Valentine Recording Presents: A Christmas Miracle, featuring a delectable spread of Christmas covers such as a rendition of John Lennon’s ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ by Alex Cameron and Jack Ladder, ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch’ by Kirin J Callinan and ‘O Holy Night’ by Weyes Blood. 

The project, originally devised as a bit of festive fun, has since morphed into a charity effort to raise money for Direct Relief after the recent Californian wildfires devastated the area during the recording of the album. To aid those effected by the natural disaster, 100% of proceeds from the album will be donated to Direct Relief. 

Not only can you do your part in helping out those in need, the album means you can please your mum by playing carols on Christmas Day without having to cop an earful of Michael BublĂ©.
