Blitzen Trapper release ‘Christmas is Coming Soon,’ donate proceeds

blitzen-trapper-giveawayIn recognition of the season of giving, Blitzen Trapper is sharing a song off the debut self-titled release, Christmas Is Coming Soon, as a pay-what-you-wish download.

All proceeds will go directly to Mercy Corps, whose mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping to build secure, productive and just communities in some of the toughest places in the world. Download the track here:

This is the only Christmas song I’ve ever written, sort of the Christmas song equivalent of a dark comedy,” frontman Eric Earley said. “We wanted to create a small way for our fans to pair with us in giving this holiday season through Mercy Corps which has been doing great work since 1979 helping people in need around the world.”

Just this past October, Blitzen Trapper released an eighth studio album, All Across This Land, to much critical acclaim with Entertainment Weekly hailing it as  “bigger, synthier, warmer” and Uncut Magazine claiming it was an infectious country rocker that deserves to be an enormous hit.”

Since All Across This Land’s release, Blitzen Trapper has been on the road in support throughout the United States. After a short holiday break, the band will be crossing the pond to tour Europe throughout the month of February. Dates can be found on
