Sharon Van Etten Shares Covers of ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Blue Christmas’

    Sharon Van Etten has shared her own take on two holiday classics: ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Blue Christmas’. Listen to both covers below.

    “The holidays are just around the corner, and since I’m always late to the party, I thought I’d share two holiday songs I recorded,” Van Etten wrote on Instagram. “Nothing really beats the Bob Dylan Christmas record for me — but I hope they bring you joy.”

    The singer-songwriter originally recorded her version of ‘Silent Night’ in 2018 for Eric Paschal Johnson’s short film The Letter, while ‘Blue Christmas’ appeared on a 2009 benefit LP called Do You EAR what I EarBoth tracks are now available on streaming services for the first time.

    Last month, Van Etten released a new song for Arthur Jones’ documentary Feels Good Man called ‘Let Go’. Back in September, she shared a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Hurt’ for National Suicide Prevention Month.
