After taking a break from releasing Christmas songs last year this year I’ve put together 2 Christmas covers…the first of which is out now! https://lnkfi.re/forgetdecember
This is a cover of Something Corporate’s ‘Forget December’ which I’ve been listening to for about 20 years…Andrew McMahon who went on to form Jack’s Mannequin and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has been one of my favourite musicians for such a long time and in the year Something Corporate reformed for a few shows it seemed fitting to cover their classic!
Stream it everywhere now and stay tuned for next Friday’s cover!
Apple Music tells me I listened to 8,771 songs and 957 artists this year and out of the new music this year here are my 9 favourites (in no particular order) but a special notable mention to Seaforth who, since discovering them in August and seeing them at The Long Road, I’ve had their album on repeat a few times a week!
I’ve just dropped a few pieces of “You’ve Got This” merch with the fortune cookie design from the EP artwork. The new t-shirts, sweaters and stickers are available now in a variety of colours and look awesome!
For the last 7 year’s Backroom Stereo has always released a Christmas song and up until a couple of weeks ago I thought this was going to be the year I missed…then I wrote a pop-punk Christmas song in about 5 minutes so here is Christmas single number 8 ‘I Hate The Snow’…it’s a minute and a half of pop-punk Christmas fun and a hint at some of the new music I’ve been writing this year!
It’s now streaming everywhere you stream music! Enjoy!
Long term fans will know that for the last 6 (maybe!) years I’ve written and released a Christmas song and this year is no different.
What happened on Christmas Eve when one of the Elves had a new persistent cough and Santa lost his sense of taste? Find out in my new pop-punk holiday classic ‘Santa Must Self Isolate’…a Christmas song for 2020.
About a year ago I rewatched the live action Scooby Doo movie and was convinced I’d heard a pop-punk cover of the AllStars song ‘Things That Go Bump in the Night’ that appears in the movie yet I couldn’t find it anywhere!
So I recorded it!
Out now…my pop-punk take of ‘Things That Go Bump in the Night’ – Stream it here
