Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace have released a collaborative Christmas EP December through Never Fade Records.
The four-track December EP features the brand new song and title-track, written and performed by Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace. It’s a beautiful piano-led ballad showcasing the duo’s perfect pairing of stunning songwriting and vocals.
The December EP also features magnificent covers of classic Christmas songs including ‘River’ by Joni Mitchell, Elvis Presley and Martina McBride’s ‘Blue Christmas’ and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ originally sung by Judy Garland.
Regarding the collaboration Gabrielle Aplin says, “I’m really happy to finally have a song out with my friend Hannah Grace. We’ve sang together for years so it was great to finally work on something new together. We’ve been wanting to collaborate on a Christmas EP for such a long time!”
Speaking about the release Hannah Grace says, “We’re so excited to share ‘December’ with the world. We got to make the EP with a long time collaborator of both of ours, Luke Potashnick, and that made the recording process so fun and special. This EP means a lot to us and we cannot wait for everyone to hear it!”
Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace have come together after a friendship that began many years ago through a shared love of music and songwriting. Their individual artist projects have always been intertwined and this year Hannah Grace signed to Never Fade Records, a label Gabrielle Aplin founded in 2010.
A joint project featuring Gabrielle and Hannah had always been a dream and last year at the annual Never Fade Records Christmas Party the idea of the collaborative Christmas EP was born.
Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace will be bringing the December EP to life at 2018’s Never Fade Christmas Party this evening, a celebration of Never Fade Records and its friends, also including the likes of Lauren Aquilina, Lewis Watson, Orla Gartland, Sonny and more.
The release of the December EP precedes Hannah Grace’s forthcoming single ‘With You’, which will be released in January.
The EP also follows the Gabrielle Aplin’s return last week with her brand new single ‘My Mistake’, the first taste of her forthcoming third album due out next year and the first release on her new worldwide record deal with AWAL.
‘My Mistake’ was released on Wednesday (Nov 28th) to a great reaction across the board of fans and media alike. It featured on 18 ‘New Music Friday’ Spotify playlists across the world including the UK and US, while it has received strong critical praise from the likes of Billboard, Sunday Times Culture and The Sun alongside early Radio 2 support from Dermot O’Leary. The gorgeous video has already clocked up 200,000 views.
