Classical soul pioneer Alexis Ffrench is no stranger to festive traditions. With more than 25 million streams on his Christmas tracks alone and half a billion streams across his whole catalogue, the world-renowned composer, producer, and pianist continues to celebrate Yuletide with the release of the festive six-track EP Christmas. The magical EP, available now on all streaming services, features a stunning arrangement of traditional Silent Night, a jingly interpretation of It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year, and cozy original single The Christmas Tree.
Alexis' new body of work provides the perfect setup for a snug, magical and evergreen Christmas, where you can almost smell the cinnamon and feel the warmth of crackling fire through the music. In the spirit of togetherness and family traditions, the EP's lead single The Christmas Tree was co-written by Alexis and his youngest son Jobim. Encapsulating a sentiment of peace and glimmers of nostalgia, Alexis has created a sense of a warm, seasonal hug.
Speaking about The Christmas Tree, Alexis Ffrench says: “I wrote this song with my son, Jobim, as we reflected on our shared memories and traditions based around the Christmas tree in our family home. We wanted to capture the enchanting silence that fills the night air every Christmas Eve, to evoke a sense of peace and tranquillity, and create a feeling that for just one short moment on this magical evening the whole world is still."
