Neighbours star and singer-songwriter Alan Fletcher kicks off the festive season with the release of his brand new original song, ‘It’s Gonna Be A Good Christmas’. The track, which sees Fletcher following his Americana roots, could easily be imagined as the anthem to a ‘Ramsay Street Christmas Day’, and is available to stream and download here.
Having already released three original Christmas songs to date, Alan shared, “I love Christmas music so much I feel compelled to try and create an original Holiday song every year! ‘It’s Gonna Be a Good Christmas’ is my country music take on an Aussie Christmas. I’ve enjoyed a lot of family Christmas celebrations over the years, and I have drawn upon those experiences, and a few myths, to create this rollicking bush ballad”
This new release follows the return of iconic Aussie soap, Neighbours, in September. In celebration of the return, Fletcher released “(I’ve Got a) Crush on Susie K”, a catchy and humorous fan tribute to one of Ramsay Street’s most beloved characters, Susan Kennedy. This track is available to stream/download worldwide, and also features on Fletcher’s CD The Lighter Side of Alan Fletcher, available to purchase here.
“I sang the song every night on the Neighbours Celebration tour and fans loved it!” said Alan. “I was overwhelmed with the number of requests to record and release the song.”
Neighbours: The Celebration Tour earlier this year saw Fletcher appear in fifteen sold-out dates across the UK, which he followed up with a solo headline tour in celebration of his recent album The Point and 2022 debut EP Dispatches.
