The holidays are upon us...and Never Shout Never is ready with the upcoming release of their special holiday effort, THE XMAS EP, due out November 25 via Loveway Records.
The EP features four spirited tracks, including covers of John Prine's "Everything Is Cool" (listen above), John Lennon and Yoko Ono's classic "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)," the Christmas standard "Winter Wonderland," and a new tune, "Under the Mistletoe," written and recorded with Dia Frampton (of Meg & Dia and The Voice fame).
"We were right outside of Hollywood in Griffith Park. We wrote it in two hours during the afternoon the day before, and recorded it the next morning," Drew recently revealed about the recording to Alternative Press. "We recorded [a demo version] over my phone, and we just winged it. I had a decent chord progression, and we came up with some cool lyrics pretty quick because it was just for fun. There was no pressure on us to make anything other than a cute Christmas song—which is pretty easy to write. I thought it turned out pretty nice. I think it’s the first duet I’ve done with a girl, recorded, up to this point."
