Essential Advent Calendar: Shakin’ Stevens – ‘Echoes Of Merry Christmas Everyone’

advent calendar 5

It’s day four of our Essential Advent Calendar, and it wouldn’t be Christmas without Shakin’ Stevens and ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ would it??

Shaky is back with a reworking of his 1985 hit, retitled, ‘Echoes Of Merry Christmas Everyone’, and it was suggested that he re-record the song, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of its first release. It’s been remixed with a Folk Rock feel, in keeping with the style of some of the tracks on his latest album, ‘Now Listen’.

Members of Shaky’s family were Salvationists since the late 1800s, so with that in mind, proceeds from his royalties for this year of release will be donated to the Salvation Army, as they celebrate an anniversary of their own, 150 years.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
