Super tight indie rock group, The Shins, are ringing in the holiday spirit with their cover of Sir Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime." The track comes from Starbucks' label, Hear Music, which released a Christmas compilation entitled Holiday Rules today, October 30th.

The compilation features a handful of prominent indie artists, including The Civil Wars, Andrew Bird, Calexico, Heartless Bastards, Fun and Eleanor Friedberger. The Shins have certainly done the already up-beat song justice, with the addition of bright synths and an even popper appeal than the original.
