Release Date: 1 November 2013
This is what happens when I’m being a smartarse: we end up with something that’s impossible to market.
I had the idea to write a christmas song, because we hadn’t done so and I hear they can be quite lucrative if you get them right. But my smartarse idea was to write about how Christmas comes too early. I actually really like christmas, but I don’t like getting worked up about it too early because then by the time it comes I’m bored with it.
I thought people would appreciate this sentiment. So we wrote it, got Paul Richards from One Day Elliott to help with production and polish the writing, got Cec, Hannah, Mark and Rus to come and do extra bits.
And we ended up with a lovely, christmassy song. Which only made sense to release in November. Foot shot.
