Your latest advent calendar unboxing is the festive release of ‘A Drummer Boy Christmas’, by the four-time GRAMMY award-winning Australian duo for KING + COUNTRY. Coming straight to you in the form of a 12″ double vinyl, 180-gram Christmas album. 

For any vinyl collectors out there, this is a must-have. The brother duo, Jake and Luke Smallbone are becoming quite the household name in the US, as one of the most respected and decorated duos with over 18. Billion streams to their name.

The 18-track record includes all the festive hits, including ‘Little Drummer Boy’, ‘Silent Night’ as well as ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ and many more. As a bonus, ‘A Drummer Boy Christmas’ includes live versions of ‘Into The Silent Night’, ‘Glorious’, ‘Baby Boy’, and ‘Little Drummer Boy’

Talking about the release, the duo explain that, “this album has been eight years in the making. It all started in an old factory on a dreary 2012 autumn night where we dreamt up our rendition of ‘Little Drummer Boy’. And from that day to this, and with a load of Christmas tours, singles and EPs under our belt, we’ve fallen in love with this miraculous season and its been written into the band’s DNA. So, when the hardship of 2020 took hold of the world, we thought that it would be the imperfectly perfect year to put together our first-ever full-length Christmas record. And what a recording journey its been, and an international one at that, from producers (Matt Hales) in Bath, England, to string orchestration (Davide: Coldplay) in Copenhagen, to recording with our live band in Nashville or mixing in London – this album has truly been a global creation.”
