MONOTREME RECORDS ANNOUNCE ‘A VERY MONOTREME CHRISTMAS’

Feeling Festive? So were Monotreme Records when they decided to commission their very first Christmas album!

They asked some of their favourite songwriters to create their own Christmassy covers or originals. The result is a truly heart-warming collection of songs including covers of age-old classics like ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ (Jack Watts) and ‘Peace On Earth / Little Drummer Boy’ (The Favourite Bench); more modern classics like The Pretenders’ ‘2000 Miles’ (Stumbleine feat Elizabeth Heaton from Midas Fall) and a slow-burning soulful rendition of Mud’s ‘Lonely This Christmas’ (Oliver Spalding); as well as some gorgeous originals by Reigns (‘Melchior’) and Jack Watts (‘That’s Christmas’), plus a Christmassy makeover of the Etta James classic ‘At Last’ (Elizabeth Heaton). The long-dormant Thee More Shallows have even resurfaced with a rousing rendition of ‘Santa Baby’!

Listen to the cover of The Pretenders 1983 track ‘2000 Miles’ by Stumbleine featuring Midas Fall vocalist Elizabeth Heaton –
