our new new abum
we've got a new album coming out at the end of november, which is a weird time to release an album. except it isn't, because it's a christmas album. so it's the perfect time to release an album. it's got eleven songs on it. eight of the are songs written by us and three of them are seasonal cover versions. fans of our previous christmas singles will be delighted to know that both the first snowflake and an extended version of little donkey are on there.
it's released on the 29th of november and will be available on cd and as a digital download. if you buy the cd from rough trade you will also get a limited edition christmas card signed by us as well. which is nice.
making a christmas album might seem like an odd thing to do, but some of our favourite songs are christmas songs. they make me so happy and so sad sometimes too. just like christmas itself. we've always been drawn to christmas songs and we've always written them. with the thought that someday we would have enough christmas songs to fill a whole album. and at last we have, so here it is. the boy least likely to christmas special. the christmas album we've always dreamed of making.
kind of explains going on tour in december too.
