The Lumineers Get In The Holiday Spirit With “This Is Life (Merry Christmas)” Featuring Daniel Rodriguez

The Lumineers have released a new holiday song, “This Is Life (Merry Christmas)” featuring solo artist (and founding member of Elephant Revival) Daniel Rodriguez. The song, originally not a holiday song, came about when singer/guitarist Wesley Schultz had Rodriguez over for dinner.

I’ve been a big Daniel Rodriguez fan for a few years now. We had him over for dinner one night, and my wife Brandy – against my wishes – told Daniel one of his songs was a Christmas song. The song was called ‘This Is Life’ and she suggested Daniel add ‘Merry Christmas’ to the chorus.  Daniel was not insulted at all, tried it, and liked the idea.  It turned out she was right, and the rest is Christmas history.

Proceeds from the song will benefit Musicares. You can stream the song through your preferred streaming service here.
