Finally here's the video for "Joy", the lead track off Tracey Thorn's fabulous new Christmas record Tinsel And Lights, and one of two self-composed tracks on it. "Joy" is a Christmas song for adults who love Christmas in the same way as they did when they were children, but for other reasons, namely that when the Christmas lights are gone, so may the brief moment of happiness be and sadness and/or the mundane everyday life returns. But Christmas shimmers, if only just for a little while, and that's cause for celebration. The video for the song was shot in the French town of Lille, where evidently there are lots of lights right now. Made me want to go.
