Topping off her first year in the charts, Wiltshire-based artist Becky Lawrence – who hails from the Isle of Man – has announced her final release of the year. IT’S CHRISTMAS, coming on 27th November, is intended to be a feel-good reminder that, despite the chaos of this year, love remains abundant. The song was co-written by Becky and her mum, Julia Skillan, making it a particularly special offering at a time of year usually associated with family and togetherness.
The single caps off Becky’s most successful year yet, which has seen her achieve an artist of the year nomination in the UK Country Music Awards, international radio play, a #1 chart position for her summer single ‘You Say’ and a milestone birthday, among other accolades.
It’s Christmas is pure, unadulterated bubblegum fun for the holidays. It’s full of images of warm fires and cold noses, snowstorms and hot toddies and all the togetherness we’ve been missing this year. It has a little bit of jingle bells, some actual jingle bells, and a star-studded choir of friends to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. The song features vocals from Tommy Atkins, Cheriebaby, Joey Clarkson, Shannon Hynes, Georgia Nevada, Louise Parker, Emilia Quinn, Stuart Rolfe, Jessica Taylor, and Emma Webb, in addition to Lawrence and Skillan, and the result is an infectious, sing-out-loud soundtrack for the holidays. I can’t wait to blast this while I decorate my Christmas tree!
