Bill Murray’s Netflix special A Very Murray Christmas is out now, and French indie rock band Phoenix put out a new holiday song for the show: a cover of the Beach Boys’ unreleased song “Alone on Christmas Day.”

Featuring Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, David Johansen, and Paul Shaffer, the track appears in the Netflix special, which is directed by Sofia Coppola (who is married to Phoenix singer Thomas Mars). A limited edition 7-inch of the song will be sold in independent music retailers starting Friday, and all proceeds from the song will benefit UNICEF.
