It's almost that time of year again and as usual Saint Etienne have news to tell you.
Firstly, they're releasing a Christmas single in December that goes on pre-sale via ouronline music shopfrom5pm(UK time) thisFriday 19th Novemberhere.
It's calledHer Winter Coatand will be accompanied by a beautiful new film by Alasdair McLellan.
Bob Stanley: "We love Christmas, as you probably know, and it feels like it's been a while since our last really Christmassy Christmas record. But I think Pete has done a properly beautiful, icy, frosted, festive job on 'Her Winter Coat'. Alasdair's film for it is the icing on the yule log. I hope you love it as much as I do. We're really looking forward to playing it live!"
Pete Wiggs: "To complement 'Her Winter Coat', Sarah and Gus Bousfield have come up with the incredibly catchy 'A Kiss Like This', laden with swirling hibernal synths, and for a touch of Cold War frost we have the brooding melancholy instrumental 'Lillehammer' to complete the package. Hope you love 'em all!"
Due to current lead times on pressing vinyl they'll be releasing the single as a four track CD EP plus two flexi discs - in Christmassy green for 'Her Winter Coat' and red for 'A Kiss Like This'. All three will be available to buy individually or as a bundle and we've decided to donate all proceeds from sales to theThe Trussell Trustwho do amazing work preventing hunger across the UK.
