A Very Monotreme Christmas2018
Monotreme Records releases new album ‘A Very Monotreme Christmas’ on 21st December featuring two original tracks: ‘That’s Christmas’ by Jack Watts and ‘Melchior’ by Reigns. 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 and 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). The album also features 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’. For something fresh, heartfelt and a little bit different this year, why not make it ‘A Very Monotreme Christmas’.
