O Little Town of Bethlehem

by Chris Marchand

supported by


The lead single off of the new Christmas album by Christmas Marchand (er...Chris Marchand): The Hopes and Fears of All the Years (release date: December 2016)

A new take on a well-worn carol, "O Little Town of Bethlehem" is an intentional homage to the sound of David Bazan and Pedro the Lion. With tingling xylophones, echoing angelic voices (they're in the background, trust us), and that ever-present guitar strum, this version will be sure to leave you sad and hopeful all at once-hinged. It's melancholy-tinged happiness for your pre-Christmas pleasure!

NOTE: This single is a free download as a promotion for the upcoming album, though you can pay for the track if you so desire.
