I came up with this cover 4 years ago. I’d moved back home with my parents earlier in the year and it was nearly Christmas. I remember sitting on the sofa feeling pretty bleak and it just poured out of me. I played it for the first time last year at a little Christmas gig, under much happier circumstances. So when I took it to the studio I wanted to capture that warm fuzzy feeling, but also acknowledge at the same time what a lovely time of year this can be. I want to do a festive song every year and this felt like a wonderful way to start.
