“Grown-Up Christmas List” is Fay’s own glistening version of the Christmas classic that has been a staple on holiday playlists for decades. Adding her “symphonic electronica” spin to the track, an ethereal and magical style that she has developed alongside her producer and co-writer Aaron Zinsmeister, she takes her turn in delivering a message that will continue to resonate at the root of the human spirit for generations to come.
“At my core, I have a pretty simple philosophy that governs my actions: Be Kind,” Fay says. “I know I am not perfect at following this, but I try. I chose to record this song for Christmas because I feel as though I could have written these lyrics. I cling to a bit of naivety, truly wishing that we could all be better to each other, regardless of our differences. ‘My Grown Up Christmas List’ has a message that needs to be heard again and again, and I hope our version did it justice!”
With “Grown-Up Christmas List,” Fay allows her listeners to witness her faith in humanity while continuing her mission to heal and inspire through the power of music. It’s the perfect reminder during the holidays that being kind to others and respecting and celebrating each other’s differences is what makes life beautiful, and that the world can become a better place if we only believe in each other a little bit more.
Fay is currently preparing to release her upcoming album Intuition, which is slated for release on February 20, 2020.
