Leighton Meester’s Wistful Cover Of Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas”: Watch
Leighton Meester’s Heartstrings debut album was one of the most underrated gems released last year, so we’re glad to see the singer/actress continuing to promote her music career with various appearances.
Back in June, the “Heartstrings” artist covered ’90s jam The Cardigans’ “Lovefool.” Now, she and friend/songwriter Dana Williams decided to go back further in time to cover Elvis Presley‘s 1964 version of “Blue Christmas.”
Meester and Williams stray away from the original’s bluesy-country vibe, and add a romantically melancholic twist that will have you feeling, well, blue for the chilly holiday season.
Ever since wrapping up her North American Heartstrings Tour in March and becoming a mother in August, Leighton has been quiet on the music front. Hopefully this “Blue Christmas” cover is a sign of a new projects to come. But in the meantime, enjoy her performance below.
