12 Days of Christmas… ‘Have Yourself A Merry Lil Christmas’ by Mutual Benefit

Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas! For 12 days up to and including Christmas Eve we’re sharing some tunes that’ll be helping you to get into the festive spirit and ranges from everything from pop to R&B, rap to punk rock. Enjoy!

Jordan Lee, the man behind Mutual Benefit, is gearing up to release his new album – the follow up to 2013’s Love’s Crushing Diamond – next year. But hold the phone, he’s also recorded a Christmas song! Yes, it’s a cover version, but while his version of ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ is just as hushed and lilting as the original, Lee also injects the song with a big dose of charm that will delight any fans of folk, in particular the earlier works of Devendra Banhart. He also stylised the ‘Little’ into ‘Lil’ because it’s been scientifically proven to make any phrase 46% more folk.
