New Release: Phoebe Bridgers – 7 O’Clock News / Silent Night ft. Fiona Apple & Matt Berninger

Continuing a tradition that began in 2017 with “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” Phoebe Bridgers has released a song just in time for Christmas. This recording – “7 O’Clock News/ Silent Night” – features Fiona Apple, on joint vocals with Bridgers, and Matt Berninger (The National, El Vy) in the role of “newscaster.”

Produced by Tony Berg (guitar), Ethan Gruska (keyboards) and Phoebe Bridgers (vocals, guitar) it was recorded at Sound City Studios in the San Fernando Valley. The track is available now via Dead Oceans. 100% of the profits from this recording are being donated to Planned Parenthood, as inspired by the song’s “newscaster” Matt Berninger, co-founder of the 7-inches For Planned Parenthood project.

In sharing the track, Bridgers includes the following note: “Happy Holidays to everyone whose family has been literally or figuratively torn apart by Donald Trump. And to my racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, hypocritical family members, fuck you. Thanks Fiona, Matt, Simon, and Garfunkel.”

This is Bridgers’ second collaboration with Berninger. She was featured on his first solo single, “Walking On A String”, released on Dead Oceans in October and featured in the Netflix film “Between Two Ferns: The Movie”.
