SINGLE FOR CHRISTMAS 2016
As a special gift, Martin Creed brings us ‘It’s You’, a Scottish Christmas carol with a difference.
LISTEN TO ‘IT’S YOU’: https://soundcloud.com/martin-creed/its-you-martin-creed-1/s-8yo1B
With echoes of Val Doonican and Johnny Cash’s Christmas specials, and overtones of ‘Listen With Mother’, ‘It’s You’ is a philosophical nursery rhyme for all the family. The song is accompanied by a festive candle-lit video featuring a Chihuahua-centric nativity scene, an angelic choir, and Martin modeling an avalanche of abominable and gorgeous cosy knitwear. A heart-warming seasonal treat with bells on…

‘A burst of pure delight….a deceptively serious collection of hooks that snag the imagination long after it’s gone’ – David Quantick, Q Magazine
‘The tunes are catchy, punk-folk-minimalist amalgams that parody pop music by increasing the simplicity and repetitiveness of much of it, and use and abuse language brilliantly’ –
Roberta Smith, The New York Times
