Never Shout Never, 'The XMas EP': Exclusive Premiere
Listen to the four-song holiday release in full.
Never Shout Never, the long-running indie rock project of singer-songwriter Christofer Drew, will return next week with "The Xmas EP," a four-song holiday collection that will be supported with the XMas Tour next month. "The XMas EP" will be released on Nov. 25, but listen to the entire EP below, exclusively on Billboard.com:
Drew produced and recorded the covers of "Everything Is Cool," "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" and "Winter Wonderland" for the extended play himself, while the singer collaborated with Dia Frampton on the original track "Under The Mistletoe." For Never Shout Never, "The XMas EP" represents an enjoyable detour after nearly a half-decade of churning out fresh material.
"'The XMas EP' was a blast to record," says Drew, "and [I] did it all at home, except for the song with Dia that we wrote and recorded in basically a 24-hour period, which was also exciting."
