Martin explains “I first heard Christmas songs when I was growing up in England in the 60s. They were such an important part of what made Christmas special for me, along with snow, Christmas trees and tinsel.
Most of these tunes are of European origin, When selecting tracks for this album, I leant towards those that were familiar to me from that time. These are new arrangements that explore the tunes while paying respect to the traditional melodies. This album comprises of 11 classic tunes as well as 3 newly composed songs.”
The album is due for release on October 9th on iTunes and in shops. It’s available for presale from the website at www.electricchristmasalbum.com (free worldwide shipping).
