One is a cover and the other is a tale about a drug-fuelled festive period
Mutual Benefit and Money have both released Christmas songs for fans.
The US singer Jordan Lee, the man behind Mutual Benefit, has done a cover of ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’, written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and famously sung by Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and even Sam Smith, who released it as a single in December 2014.
Writing on his Facebook yesterday, Lee said: “Hi everyone! My grinch heart grew 3 sizes and I made a cover of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
Manchester outfit Money (formerly an NME band of the week) have also put out a song for the festive period, titled ‘A Cocaine Christmas And An Alcoholic’s New Year’.
The track is taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Suicide Songs’, which will be out on January 29.
You can download the Christmas track from their Soundcloud, or watch them perform it live in Salford, below:
