Carly Rae Jepsen’s Cover of ‘Last Christmas’ Will Help You Ring in the Holiday Season


Usually we're pretty strict about that "no Christmas music until the Thanksgiving turkey's fully-digested" rule, but we're willing to make an exception for this: Carly Rae Jepsen just released a cover of Wham's 1985 holiday standard "Last Christmas." Much as you might expect with any pairing of the Emotion singer and the ’80s, the result is a synth-y treat. Jepsen opts out of the vocal gymnastics that mark so many holiday covers and instead carves a smooth, wistful, and almost melancholy groove. Grab some hot cider and a few blankets, find a spot by the window, and wait for the snow to start falling, because the holidays are here.
