Skip the Thanksgiving mode and dive right into Christmas with Lola Kirke’s latest singles “Cross You Off My List” and “Little Drummer Girl.” For all of us who have already mentally checked out of 2018, these two beauties are just what we need to kill time and enjoy Xmas:

In regards to “Cross You Off My List,” Lola shared, “It was a much more somber sounding song that set out to question how to celebrate Christmas in such a fraught environment,” she continued. “While we’re still conflicted about how to invoke the ‘spirit of Christmas’ in today’s political climate, we decided to revise the song-set it to a more a upbeat chord progression and dash it with a bit more hope.”

As for the cover, the gal explained, “With ‘Little Drummer Girl’ our intentions were somewhat similar – we wanted to update an old narrative by changing the gender of the character within the song and set the classic to a musical landscape that was both exciting to us and also peaceful.”

Lola is currently in her sold-out UK tour and will be returning to California for December. Whether you’re here or there, go see her:
