Hot on the heels of their album release, Kodaline drops today a new single ‘This Must Be Christmas‘ and also the deluxe edition of their latest album.
Today they also release the deluxe edition of their latest album, which features a collaboration with Gabrielle Aplin on their track Everyone Changes (which is currently on BBC Radio 2s B-list), two covers Teenage Kicks and The Rare Auld Times, and of course the previously released singles ‘Wherever You Are’, ‘Sometimes’, ‘Saving Grace’ and ‘Say Something’; This Must Be Christmas sees the band venture into their very first Christmas single.
The new festive single ‘This Must Be Christmas‘ looks to cap off a triumphant year for the Irish outfit. With traditionally warming lyrics and a soft, breezy flow, their new offering is bound to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Kodaline says about the new single, “We’ve always wanted to write a Christmas song but we never actually got around to doing it until now. We’re excited to share This Must Be Christmas with you. I suppose the song was influenced by The Pogues Fairytale Of New York’, it’s kind of an anti-Christmas song about drowning your sorrows in the pub on Christmas. Anyway, we hope you enjoy it.“
Today Kodaline has also released the deluxe version of ‘One Day At A Time’ on 20th November both physically and digitally, making it the first opportunity for fans to own the record in a physical format.
In August this year, Kodaline performed their smash-hit album ‘In A Perfect World’ back to back for the first time since its recording, and will be heading back to the stage with the showcase live across the UK and Ireland in 2021. Tickets on sale now from Here
