Bushbranch

Music legend Eric Clapton offers up his first ever Christmas album with Happy Xmas. Following-up 2016's chart topping I Still Do, the festive 14-track collection mixes Clapton's personal favorite holiday standards ("White Christmas," "Away in a Manger," "Jingle Bells," "Silent Night") with somoe hidden Christmas gems and the new original "For Love On Christmas Day," all with the iconic guitarist/vocalist's signature sound and arrangements. "I had in my head that these holiday songs could be done with a slight blues tinge, and I started to figure out how to play the blues lines in between the vocals," said Clapton, who co-produced Happy Xmas with longtime collaborator Simon Climie. "I got it down and one of the most identifiable songs on the album, the one that became the foundational style, is ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.'" Adorned with a cover art illustration by Clapton himself and mastered at 180g 45RPM 2LPfor maximum fidelity, this may just be the holiday album of the decade!
