Julien Baker Shares Cover of ‘A Dreamer’s Holiday’

    Julien Baker has shared a cover of ‘A Dreamer’s Holiday’ as part of this year’s Spotify’s Singles: Holiday Collection. Listen to her take on the festive classic below.

    “I chose ‘Dreamers Holiday’ because I found it incredibly unique as far as holiday songs are concerned”, Baker said in a statement. “It’s a very understated song- both lyrically and musically; while it’s technically about a ‘holiday’, it doesn’t directly reference any specific holiday theme, it leaves the lyrics a bit more open-ended. It’s the same way with the music— the chord structure is complicated but surprisingly timeless to me even though the song itself is over 70 years old. It’s the kind of song whose arrangement can be re-imagined so many times, and I love the feeling of sonic potential a single like that gives me.”

    Baker recently announced her third studio album, Little Oblivions. The follow-up to 2017’s Turn Out the Lights arrives on February 26, 2021 via Matador and includes the single ‘Faith Healer’.
