Tracey Thorn of Everything But The Girl fame is currently recording her first Christmas record for an October release. The album will include "'obscure' cover versions and a couple of new original songs". Ewan Pearson is producing and EBTG partner Ben Watt features on guitar and piano, and, I guess, backing vocals as well. Something to look forward to even though Christmas is not really on my mind in April.
Follow their brand new website for updates on the project as well as the upcoming reissues of the first four EBTG albums.
