Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes, whose live karaoke performances on social media kept the huddled masses in good cheer during lockdown, will release a Christmas record this year.
Eagles of Death Metal Presents A Boots Electric Christmas is expected in November via UMe. It’s a 6-track EP that spreads positive holiday sounds via CD and all digital formats.
Hughes, AKA “Boots Electric,” tracks perennial holiday classics “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Put A Little Love In Your Heart,” “O Holy Night,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and “Little Town Of Bethlehem.”
Listeners can get a taste of the holiday release today as Hughes released an a cappella rendition of “O Holy Night” featuring Hughes and EODM bandmate Joshua Homme on vocals. And all kidding aside, Boots and Homme bring a long overdue modern twist to a gorgeous holiday classic.
Listen to ‘O Holy Night’ here:
“Just a few songs to warm your heart during Christmas time,” Hughes said. “I hope you like them. May Christmas bring peace to you all. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, I love you, and God bless you all.”
Pre-order Eagles of Death Metal Presents A Boots Electric Christmas HERE now and immediately receive “O Holy Night,” followed by “Put A Little Love In Your Heart” on October 29.
