Sometimes, you don’t realize how much you need something until it becomes a reality, which is how I feel about the news of Eric Clapton’s upcoming Christmas album.
Due out October 12, Happy Xmas will feature 14 tracks, including an original tune titled “For Love On Christmas Day.” The rest of the album will be filled with Clapton’s bluesy take on holiday classics like “Silent Night” and “White Christmas.”
Honestly, the fact it took God this long to record an album honoring his son’s birthday is bordering on sin itself, but not as blasphemous as not pre-ordering this soon-to-be-classic ASAP!
