    Mountain Man Releases "White Christmas" Cover on Nonesuch Records

    Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—follows up its 2018 Nonesuch debut album, Magic Ship, and its Sings John Denver EP with the second in its Sings cover series: the 1942 Irving Berlin holiday classic, "White Christmas." The digital single is available now via the Nonesuch Store, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and other digital service providers.

    "We wanted to record a song that could be played in people's homes throughout the holidays, like a gentle push of light," says the band. "We thought 'White Christmas' might do the trick!"

    Mountain Man has also announced a series of shows in the New Year: As part of Duke Performances, it will bring COSMIC PROM to The Fruit in Durham, North Carolina, January 17–19, 2020. In collaboration with visual artist Nathaniel Russell, the trio will create three distinct experiences as part of COSMIC PROM: Beneath the Stars, Under the Canopy, and Below the Sea. The venue will transform each night into a unique and immersive environment in which audiences and Mountain Man will embrace spontaneity, imagination, and wonder. The band will explore its collective catalog, joined by special guests; details and tickets are available here.

    To pick up a copy of Mountain Man's Nonesuch debut album, Magic Ship, and stream it, go here. To do the same for Dawnbreaker, the debut solo album from Daughter of Swords (Alexandra Sauser-Monnig), go here.
