“I hope it’s a Christmas album for people who love Christmas music and people who don’t love Christmas music. May these songs welcome in a fresh new year and many warm, happy nights.” Austin indie darling Molly Burch achieves her goal to reach the Christmas music lovers and Christmas music skeptics with the pure joy she emits on The Molly Burch Christmas Album. Featuring tracks such as ABBA’s “Happy New Year” and a playful cover of Wham’s “Last Christmas”, Burch enlists comedians John Early (Search Party, Wet Hot American Summer) and Kate Berlant (Sorry to Bother You, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) for striking intros and backing vocals throughout. Not to mention, the album also features two originals penned by Burch to add to your holiday discography.
The Texas singer-songwriter spread the holiday cheer in Studio 1A in anticipation of The Molly Burch Holiday Party at Scholz Garten on December 13th. There will be special holiday drinks, a photo booth, and a performance from the chanteuse herself! Can’t make it out? Check out the live performance below!
