Christmas songs are not to everyone’s tastes, it has to be said. For every decent festive number, there tends to be 1000 shite ones. It seems however that house legends Orbital may have stumbled across an ingenious way of getting the formula right
Just take a bonafide classic song that you have written and rerecord it with a xmas twist. Ladies & gentlemen, I give you ‘Christmas Chime’ by Orbital.
The track will be released on 16th December. We urge you all to buy it and get it to xmas number 1!
Phil and Paul Hartnoll from the band said, “I did a Christmas version of ‘Chime’, been meaning to do it for years but finally got round to it, we are releasing December 16 – if you want to make it a Christmas Number One, by all means buy it, tell your friends!” He added: “But really the intention is to bring something Orbital to Santa’s smorgasbord of Christmas songs – and let’s be honest, there aren’t that many electronic festive tunes around! So dance away while you make the Christmas dinner, pack it away with the other Christmas decorations when you’ve had enough and get it out next and every year for that genuine raving around the Christmas tree feeling.”
