Santa and his Christmas Crackers say â€˜Let There Be Christmasâ€™ with new LP, November 25th
Online PR News – 01-November-2013 – Cambridge – After almost 200 years delivering gifts around the world to all the well behaved children on December 24th, Santa Claus has this year decided to add to his prodigious workload by releasing his first ever album.
Bringing together elves and members of staff from his day job to create band â€˜The Christmas Crackersâ€™, Santa has selected a number of original Christmas tunes for the LP. Heâ€™s also chosen a number of his own favourite tunes to cover, including â€˜Merry Christmas Everyoneâ€™, â€˜Santa Claus is Coming to Townâ€™, â€˜So Here It Is Merry Christmasâ€™ and more. Thereâ€™s even a seasonal version of Carl Douglas hit â€˜Kung Fu Fightingâ€™, re-titled â€˜Christmas Shoppingâ€™, which has received high praise from Douglas himself.
So, why the sudden desire to produce and release his own music after all this time?
One day last May, Santa received a letter from a nine year old boy who lived on the east coast of Australia. He wanted to ask if Santa could bring a present of new Christmas songs to their Mum. Every year at Christmas the boy would hear his Mum say that, however much she loved Christmas, she wasnâ€™t looking forward to hearing the same old songs over and over again on the Radio and in the shops.
She longed for something new, and Santa decided that he would add her gift to his list.
â€˜Let There Be Christmasâ€™ is released November 25th from all good download sites.
