Julien Baker shares her take on festive classic ‘A Dreamer’s Holiday’. The track is out via this year’s Spotify’s Singles: Holiday Collection which includes a wide range of covers and originals, from artists across a myriad of genres. Listen HERE.
“I chose ‘Dreamers Holiday’ because I found it incredibly unique as far as holiday songs are concerned”, says Baker. “It’s a very understated song- both lyrically and musically; while it’s technically about a ‘holiday’, it doesn’t directly reference any specific holiday theme, it leaves the lyrics a bit more open-ended. It’s the same way with the music— the chord structure is complicated but surprisingly timeless to me even though the song itself is over 70 years old. It’s the kind of song whose arrangement can be re-imagined so many times, and I love the feeling of sonic potential a single like that gives me.”
Baker recently announced the February 26 release of her third studio album, Little Oblivions and shared the first single, ‘Faith Healer‘ to world-wide critical acclaim. ‘Faith Healer’ introduces the exhilarating, widescreen musical palette and infectious spirit of risk-taing found on Little Oblivions, a transformative sonic shift from Baker’s more spare and intimate previous work.
