Hard Candy | 26.11.12

It just about feels ok to be playing Tracey Thorn’s new Christmas album now. I still find myself forwarding through her version of Have Yourself A Merry Christmas just because I feel like that should be the preserve of December onwards only.

Alongside the new pieces that she has written for the album are a number of cover versions of songs that reference winter and the cold if not your actual Christmas. A quick trawl through Spotify reveals an alarming number of these tracks also appear on various incarnations of Glee: The Christmas Album but did also bring up this cover of Hard Candy Christmas by RuPaul. Enjoy.
