The Lumineers Cover ‘Blue Christmas’

By Amanda Wicks

After performing a cover of “Blue Christmas,” a holiday song made famous by Elvis Presley, last night (December 1st) at the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in President’s Park at the White House, The Lumineers have released that track to stream.

Fans of the indie band will appreciate their low key take on Presley’s hit. Wesley Schultz’s mournful vocals reverberate in The Lumineers’ version until Neyla Pekarek joins him, adding harmonies to make the already melancholy song even more somber. The band keeps the instrumentation stripped down to the essentials, so the lyrics maintain their impact.

“Blue Christmas” is available on iTunes, Spotify and more. Listen below.
