Indulge in Christmas tenderness with Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert's "A Ghost Story for Christmas"

Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert return with another festive number "A Ghost Story for Christmas".

"A Ghost Story for Christmas" is the crux of Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert's new Christmas record.

Last month the duo returned with their first offering, a festive-tinged take on Yazoo's "Only You".

The new offering ingests snippets of their favourite Christmas tunes to create a cosy lullaby that'll leave the smell of pine needles in your nose.

On the new tune, Moffatt says, "I had some words that I felt would suit a piano backing, so I challenged Hubby to write something for piano and he spent two weeks on YouTube learning to play it."

After putting the new festive tune together, Moffat explains, “Then, on a nice, sunny, summer morning, I phoned Hubby and suggested we just do a whole album. We were really enjoying it – there’s something pleasantly perverse about recording Christmas songs in summer clothes – so we just kept going."

Ghost Stories For Christmas is their first project since their Here Lies the Body record that landed back in May.

"A Ghost Story for Christmas" is out now. Ghost Stories for Christmas arrives on 7 December ROCK ACTION Records. The duo play London's Oslo on 12 December as part of their handful of festive shows. Find out more.
