Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas – the first track from Cherry Ghost in 5 years. Cutting into the rotten core of politics whilst marking the festive season. Simon Aldred transformed a would-be, fireside Christmas classic into a caustic commentary on the poverty-enabling, truth-distorting and minority-weakening election campaign and its shock outcome – writing it 24 hours before the result was announced.
