Ladies and gentlemen, have we got a treat for you!
As we near the completion (finally) of Never Love A Stranger, we’ve decided to kick off the new year with this brand new single. “In The Bleak Midwinter” was originally made for our live performance on a WYOU winter telethon. The telethon required us to perform at least one Christmas song, so we chose a classic carol with words written by the English poet Christina Rossetti sometime before 1872. Twisting the words a bit, we turned a Christmas carol into an anytime love song.
The track was recorded at House Arrest studios in Madison, Wisconsin by Brian Nolan (who you may know from American Hi-Fi). The cover photo was originally taken by Nikki Gibson and edited by John Praw.
