Andy Twyman – A Naked Noël (Christmas Single) A cheeky brand new Christmas music video release from one man band Andy Twyman.
Speaking about the single Ron and Russell Mael said: “As the tradition has been in Sparks, every 41 years marks the time to share an ode to Christmas. It’s 2015, and ’tis the season. So please celebrate our “Christmas Without A Prayer” release. And stay tuned for exciting Xmas news for 2056”.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the classic ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’.
To celebrate the occasion, it was suggested that Stevens re-record the song, in the style of his new album.
How could one resist? So, adopting a feel of Folk Rock (as used on some of the tracks on the new album), the song has been re-recorded, with the new title ‘Echoes Of Merry Christmas Everyone’.
Members of Shaky’s family were Salvationists since the late 1800’s, and so the proceeds from the Artist’s royalties for this year of release will be donated to the Salvation Army, to help with the excellent work of this caring charitable organization, as they celebrate their 150th anniversary.
