Listeners will hear Sophie’s stunning vocal shine brightly as it pairs perfectly with Quinn’s engaging country tone in this international collaboration. Christmas will certainly come early to fans of both artists as they deliver their stylish rendition in early December.
“This is the first time I’ve released a Christmas song and I’m really excited that I get to do so with Gary”, says the Swedish country-pop singer. “After a little discussion, ‘O Holy Night’ was an obvious choice as we found we both share a great love for the song’, explained Sophie.
Producer, Richard Alex, beautifully compliments the strong vocal performances with a wonderful variety of instruments, including electric guitar and cello, that still delivers traditional depth but with a modern country sound to the much-loved Christmas favourite.
“I’ve always loved ‘O Holy Night’, it reminds me of family and how special it is to be with one another at Christmas time”, revealed the Northern Irish singer-songwriter. “I’m delighted Sophie agreed to sing this with me, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it”, added Quinn.
This superb version of ‘O Holy Night’ will be available to download and stream on all leading platforms from December 4th, 2020.
