Lisa Hannigan and Ladyhawke release Christmas covers

A quick couple of releases from the last couple of days. Stereogum announced the full release of Amazon's 'All is Bright' playlist from which you can get Yoko Ono with The Flaming Lips singing Happy Xmas(war is over) Also on that playlist is Ladyhawke singing Merry Christmas Everone. It's a big bouncy version of the classic UK Christmas number one. You can get your copy from Amazon here. As far as I ca tell there's no versions on Soundcloud or youtube yet but if you find one I'll post it here so you can have a preview. If I'm honest the rest of the playlist appears at first glance to be a whole lot of nobodies. If you think any tracks are worth annother listen tweet me @xmasssongblog and I'll reassess.

I know there's alot of British artists covering Joni Mitchell's classic 'River' but Lisa Hannigan is one of our favourites. Recorded in aid of aware a depression support charity in Ireland. Hannigan released her version today and you can get it on itunes here River - A Murray Christmas 2 (feat. RTE Concert Orchestra)
or get the full album from amazon here.

Again no soundcloud or youtube but it's for charity so I sincerly hope you buy it.
