The Feeling checked in with fans on their MySpace (@thefeeling) on Monday (December 1) after posting a new holiday song. The British pop rock group tell readers:
We’re very pleased to announce that The Feeling have written and recorded a beautiful seasonal song called ‘Feels Like Christmas’, which you may hear blaring from your wireless sets in the coming weeks while you’re roasting chestnuts on an open fire, drinking mulled wine from a glass slipper and dangling silken ropes from a severed conifer in your front room.
Says Dan: “I’m the opposite of the ‘Bah Humbug’ Christmas grump. I’ve always loved Christmas and the surrounding hullabaloo – especially the songs from Bing to Slade to Wizzard to Bing and Bowie. I wrote and recorded this one several years ago on the piano, but never intended it to be released so I kept it a secret. We added the drums and strings this year and then we thought it might be a good time to let people hear it to see what they thought.”
The track has already been added to the Radio 2 playlist. Hear it now on the band’s MySpace.
