It seems like only a heartbeat has passed since the release of Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert‘s critically acclaimed album, Here Lies The Body.
The two (perhaps self-confessed Scrooges) have announced the release of long player, Ghost Stories For Christmas. A ten-track record promising an alternative take on the holiday which hints at adaptations of old stories and fairy tales delivered in their own unique way.
The announcement is accompanied by a poignant cover of Yazoo’s ‘Only You‘. The pair are joined by Scottish indie stalwarts Jenny Reeve and Emma Pollock and the result is a hopeful yet heart-wrenching ballad. The starkly beautiful rays of light that shine through thanks to melodic vocal interweavings and the sheer simplicity of the arrangement helps make the sentiment clear.
You can pre-order Ghost Stories For Christmas via Rock Action Records
