It's all there! Could this be the 2019 Christmas #1...?
'A Thing Called Christmas', the 12th 2019 single from Sussex based Mailman, is released on 13th December in aid of Shelter UK.
Writer and producer Jamie 'Stan' Stanley:
The 2018 Mailman album 'Yang Yin' was a double concept album that took years to create. I wanted the next album to be the exact opposite - 12 bombastic, quickly written pop singles, one for every month of 2019. It was around June when I realised what that meant for December... Most modern Christmas songs are awful, in my view, and all the great ones have been played to death. The challenge, then, was to write a genuinely good one that pays homage to the greats. Did I succeed? You'll be the judge of that... Either way, I intend to donate the proceeds of this record to Shelter UK and do my small bit to tackle the UK's homelessness crisis.
