Proceeds from the recording will be donated to Planned Parenthood. "Happy Holidays to everyone whose family has been literally or figuratively torn apart by Donald Trump," Bridgers said in a statement. "And to my racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, hypocritical family members, fuck you. Thanks Fiona, Matt, Simon, and Garfunkel."

Bridgers previously collaborated with Berninger earlier this year on "Walking On A String," a track taken from Netflix's Between Two Ferns: The Movie.
