The Essential Advent Calendar: December 8

The Essential Advent Calendar: December 8 – Why Don’t We Is ‘With You This Christmas’

It’s the 8th door of our Essential Advent Calendar, and we open it to see Why Don’t We with their eleventh new song of 2019, ‘With You This Christmas’ – available now via Atlantic Records.

Written and produced by the group, ‘With You This Christmas’ follows the release of ‘What Am I’, written by Ed Sheeran and produced by Steve Mac.

2019 proved to be an exciting year for Why Don’t We, whose 8 Letters Tour was their biggest headline run to date, finishing last week in Australia and New Zealand.

Why Don’t We comprises  Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, and Jack Avery.

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.
