Emmy The Great and Ash’s Tim Wheeler have announced plans to promote their joint seasonal album, ‘This Is Christmas’, via an evening of festive merriment at London’s Bush Hall on 14 Dec.

The LP, which is released via Infectious Music on 21 Nov, will feature nine of the duo’s original songs, and a Phil Spector cover.

Says Tim: “I’m a sucker for all kinds of Christmas songs from carols to Nat King Cole to 70s glam rock classics to 80s guilty pleasures. And it felt like a good time to contribute something new to the genre”.

While we’re on the subject of Christmas songs, have you heard Justin Bieber and Busta Rhymes’ take on ‘Little Drummer Boy’? It’s quite something.
