HAIM have shared a new holiday track called ‘Christmas Wrapping 2020 (all I want for christmas is a vaccine)’. A Hannukah-centric rework of The Waitresses’ 1981 holiday classic ‘Christmas Wrapping’, the song recaptures the madness of 2020 over a slinky bass line courtesy of Thundercat, production from Ariel Rechtshaid, horns by Henry Solomon, and keys from Frank Ocean collaborator Buddy Ross. The lyrics, penned by Slave Play writer Jeremy O., include references to ‘WAP’, Zendaya’s Emmy, COVID-19, the US election, and more. Check it out below, alongside an accompanying music video featuring graphics by Pedro TQM.
“HAPPY HANUKKAH!!” the HAIM sisters wrote on Twitter. “Presenting our FIRST EVER holiday song: Christmas Wrapping 2020 (All I Want for Christmas is a Vaccine) We hope this song helps you get through the holiday season.”
