There’s a new holiday anthem from the woman who wrote “F**k and Run,” and it’s great. 

Liz Phair’s “Ho Ho Ho” premiered on Tuesday on Stereogum and will be featured on Amazon’s holiday playlist All Is Bright. Per Stereogum, Phair said, “I’ve always wanted to write a dystopian Christmas song.”

Hence, “Ho Ho Ho” features references to “doing shots of room-temperature peppermint schnapps.” It’s not all bad though, Phair sings, “still I believe in the spirit of forgiveness, yes I do, because nobody gets a perfect Christmas.”

It’s Christmas music for those who don’t like to admit they listen to Christmas music.
