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), Thee More Shallows’ take on ‘Santa Baby’, 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’).
Midas Fall vocalist Elizabeth Heaton’s Christmassy makeover of the Etta James classic ‘At Last’ is the latest track to be shared from the compilation. Elizabeth comments,
“At Last has been my “go to” karaoke song for years now, but I always wanted to put my own spin on it. So when it came to thinking of this years Christmas song (a yearly tradition for the band) this felt right. It truly embraces the nostalgic and warm feeling of Christmas for me”
