Chilly Gonzales Announces Christmas Album Feat. Feist & Jarvis Cocker

Chilly Gonzales

Pianist and pop music scholar Chilly Gonzales has announced a new Christmas album out next week. A Very Chilly Christmas features covers of David Berman’s “Snow Is Falling In Manhattan,” Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” and a whole bunch of holiday standards along with one original song, “The Banister Bough.” Feist and Jarvis Cocker are both featured on the Purple Mountains cover, and Feist also helps out on the new track.

“Christmas is a time of very mixed intense emotion for me, and the existing canon often sounds like a forced smile,” Gonzales says. “Christmas is a typical time for superficial happiness, but also a time for reflection and mourning the sad events throughout the year. The songs of A very chilly christmas make room for a more authentic interpretation of this very peculiar 2020 holiday season.”
