|Omschrijving||Three times Progressive Music Award winning
band, Big Big Train, release their first
Christmas single on December 8th 2017. The
single is called Merry Christmas and the vinyl
and CD versions of the release will feature a
B-side called Snowfalls.
A donation to the Night Stop homelessness
charity will be made for every copy sold.
Big Big Train vocalist David Longdon says:
Merry Christmas is a song about rediscovering
our childlike belief in the magic of Christmas,
despite living in an over-commercial and
sometimes cynical world. After all, what
wouldnít you give to believe again, like you
believed back then?
Bass player Greg Spawton: We wanted Merry
Christmas to be a proper Christmas song, so it
features the Big Big Train brass band, The
Chapel Choir Choristers of Jesus College,
Cambridge and, of course, sleigh bells.
The promotional film for Merry Christmas will
premiere on 1st December and stars actor Mark
Benton who says: When Big Big Train asked me to
get involved with the video for Merry
Christmas, I didnít need much convincing. Iím a
big fan of the band and love the way they tell
stories through their beautifully crafted
songs. This song is a real Christmas song with
everything you need from choirs to sleigh
bells. The video was great fun to shoot and
hopefully really conveys the Christmas message.
Letís make it number one in the charts, the
moneyís going to a great cause. Iím playing
triangle and kazoo on the next album but donít
tell the band because they donít know it yet.
Merry Christmas is released on 7 inch snow
white vinyl (with a gatefold cover), digipack
CD, hi-res and standard-res download and
