Following on from a quiet couple of years, composer and producer Chilly Gonzales is back to announce the details of a special festive studio release.
The new full-length 'A very chilly christmas' will feature collaborations with the likes of Feist and Jarvis Cocker, is being previewed by his rendition of 'Silent Night', and is set to be released on the 13th November.
Speaking about the new collection, he said, “Christmas is a time of very mixed intense emotion for me, and the existing canon often sounds like a forced smile. Christmas is a typical time for superficial happiness, but also a time for reflection and mourning the sad events throughout the year, and to play the songs in a minor key makes Christmas more authentic and realistic.”
