Elle King & Ronnie Spector Are Ready to Snuggle and Rock 'Under the Mistletoe'

Your holiday season just got a little more rockin'. With a deep catalog of Christmas classics in her arsenal already ("Frosty the Snowman," "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"), rock icon Ronnie Spector has teamed up with Elle King for a new end-of-year anthem, "Under the Mistletoe."   

The track is not officially due until Friday, but in a statement to People magazine, Spector said, "Everybody knows I love Christmas! And I'm thrilled to sing a new holiday song for a worthy cause!"  

Spector said it was great to collaborate with King on the tune, which was produced by Valentine Recording Studios co-owner Nic Jodoin and will benefit the artist-led charity The Art of Elysium. The song is classic Spector, with chiming bells, a Wall of Sound-style arrangement and some seriously sensual holiday cheer. "You're the only gift that I really I want this year/ I don't ever care if the party all dissappears/ So send them all away/ Out into the snow/ So we can be alone under the mistletoe," Spector croons in her signaure longing voice.
