Patrick Droney Covers “All I Want For Christmas Is You” for Spotify Singles: Holiday
Spotify is spreading holiday cheer with a playlist that includes a collection of covers of Christmas classics by some of the biggest names in music. This year’s collection includes 12 new songs from Patrick Droney, Julien Baker, Sasha Sloan, Betty Who, and Dashboard Confessional, plus any artists who may have recorded in years past including John Legend, Norah Jones, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson, Sam Smith, and Demi Lovato.
Patrick states, “Mariah Carey pulled off an incredible feat writing ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ – a recording that has been an enduring staple from both a traditional and commercial standpoint. It’s an incredibly crafted Pop song that also conjures the intimate sentiment of wanting to be with the one you love. I wanted to hone in on that intention and set it over a half time groove to really lean into that soulfulness. It was a blast to rearrange while staying true to the original elements. The freedom to have grand moments as holiday songs do allowed for some special musical conversations and I couldn’t have had more fun.”
The self-produced cover comes on the heels of Patrick’s recently released EP, State Of The Heart.
