‘In the Cold, Cold Night’ is about to become part of the american folklore, the same way “Jingle Bells” did and turn into a traditional anthem, sang far and wide by all sorts of X-mas enthusiasts and the likes… However, Tracey brings in a gust of warm fresh vocals to this fabulous cover unlike the totally unique cover art… Very White Stripey !
It’s the first track to be released from Tracey’s upcoming album of modern and retro Christmas classics, ‘Tinsel and Lights’ (album out today ya’ll).
Get it here : ‘In The Cold, Cold Night’
Written by Jack White and originally performed by The White Stripes (my favorite band of all time obvs), it forms part of a unique transatlantic ‘double A-side’ digital single. While Strange Feeling release ‘In the Cold, Cold Night’ in the UK, Tracey’s American label Merge Records will release the album’s title track ‘Tinsel and Lights’ on the same day. How friggin’ Cool !
