In a dream pairing for us, New Hampshire's Wyn Doran has covered Julia Jacklin's holiday song from last year, "baby jesus is nobody's baby now." While Jacklin's original is fairly sparse, Doran's feels even more sparse despite having the same basic instrumentation. The only difference is while Jacklin's version is vocals and guitar, Doran's is vocals and ukulele (I believe it's a uke, at least). It's a gorgeous version of a gorgeous song, and it's the perfect way to bring a non-traditional new holiday favorite back into your playlists this year! Plus, it's not exactly a Christmas song filled with cheer, so it fits right in with Wyn Doran's oeuvre perfectly.
You can listen to Wyn Doran's version of "baby jesus is nobody's baby now" below. For more on Wyn Doran, check out the artist's website.
