merry x-mas from gaspard royant

One of CAGG's  favorite artists is French singer Gaspard Royant. Last month we posted a new single, but now we proudly present his first "Album de Noël". In 2009 he released his first record. His second album, from 2016, is produced by Edwyn Collins. He likes the sixties but also (Northern) soul. Since 2014 he released  Christmas songs every year. They are all compiled on 'Wishing You A Merry Christmas'. Apart from three songs of his own he does a lot of covers like 'Everythings's Gonna Be Cool This Christmas'  from The Eels. But also known songs like  'Last Christmas' or even 'White Christmas', but never boring. The album closes with 'New Year's Day' a surprising make over from the U2 song. In this video, from radio Europe 1, you can find out more from his very nice X-mas album.
