Mac DeMarco releases a Christmas song


Mac is back with a brand new track and, fittingly, it would seem DeMarco is feeling festive.

Teaming up with Australian singer, songwriter, and occasional actor Kirin J Callinan, the duo have released ‘The Christmas Song’ in conjunction with Valentine Recording Presents: A Christmas Miracle.

The Christmas record, which features 10 festive tracks, includes ‘O Holy Night by Weyes Blood, ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ by Alex Cameron and Jack Ladder and plenty more.

“I had a strange idea this year- Rather than organizing a holiday party, I attempted to put together a day recording session with musician friends in LA, and track some Christmas songs for fun,” Valentine Recordings explained. “While planning the session, the California wildfires broke out across the state, destroying thousands of homes, and displacing so many. 

They continued: “It occurred to my friends and that the project may have potential to help people in CA, and abroad, who are helpless and suffering from such natural disasters, in need of shelter and medical attention. 

“So, in the spirit of Christmas, we’ve attempted to put this album together as a donation to a charity who does just that, Direct Relief.
