PREMIERE: Seth Swirsky’s looking for his ‘Christmas Eve’ on throwback festive song

Christmas classics occupy the position they do for a reason, so i you’re going to try to emulate them, you’d better do a damn good job. Seth Swirsky making a song that tips its hat to the Beach Boys and specifically their 1964 Christmas album makes sense.

If you’re unfamiliar, luckily Swirsky released a new record this past April called Songs From the Green Couch. It’s below if you fancy discovering an artist who values quality over quantity – four solo albums in 16 years – and has a reputation as an esteemed songwriter with credits on several hits by the likes of Tina Turner and Celine Dion.

Far from a mere tribute, his new festive song ‘Christmas Eve’ is a throwback song with a modern twist and genuinely sweet story behind it. Says Swirsky: “The origin of this song is funny: I met a lovely woman at a Christmas party in New York City awhile back named Eve. We hit it off but she told me she was leaving the next morning to go back to LA, where she lived. I said, ‘I guess I have to wait till next year to see you at this Christmas party again, huh?.’ And, for the next 3 years, that is when I saw Eve: on Christmas Eve at that annual party. She was literally my ‘Christmas Eve!'”

Premiering today via its Pat Salway-directed video, the song’s out now via Lollipop Records.
