Published Dec 25, 2017Christmas just got a little more merry for Mac DeMarco fans, since the cheeky songwriter just released a cover of Paul McCartney's cheesy holiday classic "Wonderful Christmastime."
Mac originally issued this song on vinyl through his fan club. Now, as a Christmas gift for anyone who isn't a fan club member, he has uploaded the song to YouTube along with the message "stank ye paul."
DeMarco puts a moody spin on the aggressively cheerful tune, reworking the arrangement with minimal drum machines and echoing keyboards. His signature quirkiness emerges in the second half of the tune, as he tries out some silly vocal deliveries.
Listen to the cover below.
The outrageous cover artwork, which shows Mac and Macca melting together on a gross couch, is above.
