a christmas song and a christmas video
then because it was going to be a single we thought we'd better make a video for it. unfortunately it wasn't snowing in wendover in november, so we had to drive all the way up to the very top of scotland in search of snow, and the video follows us in our ever hopeful quest. you can watch it here.
i think it might be quite a sad song even if it ends quite happily. i guess all my favourite christmas songs have a little bit of sadness in them, because even though christmas is a lovely time, it can also be quite a sad time too. at christmas, you always notice the things that are missing, whether it's someone that isn't around or just a feeling that you used to have that you don't have anymore.
so this is 'the first snowflake', a little pop song about feeling lost and alone at christmas. i hope it makes you happy and i hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did recording it for you.
it will be available to buy in the UK and the USA on december 15th.
merry christmas and a happy new year.
