‘It’s a Wonderful Christmas Carol’ – released 24th November via Xtra Mile Recordings, limited edition red vinyl also available via Xtra Mile / Pie & Vinyl Records.
It’s a Wonderful Christmas Carol is a brand new collection of seasonal songs from the UK’s foremost (or only) purveyors of concept-folk-pop, The Retrospective Soundtrack Players.
It’s A Wonderful Christmas Carol borrows themes of loneliness, greed, poverty and eventual redemption from the classic works of Dickens and Capra, weaving them into a new collection of festive songs that showcase the band’s unique voice.
It’s A Wonderful Christmas Carol features guest appearances from several artists from the Xtra Mile stable – namely FRANK TURNER, BEN MARWOOD and CHRIS T-T.
The band will be launching the album with a free show at London’s Camden Monarch on Friday 21st November (10pm curfew).
