AAAAaaaaand we're back

Hiy'all. Usually, we fire up the blog on November 1. But since the lovely girls of Clean Pete decided to release their brilliant Dutch take on God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen today, we had no choice but follow.
Now, Clean Pete, you might remember them from this Christmas track. Or this one. You might have visited their Xmas shows (two coming up in Decemer). Even if Dutch is not your language, you have to admire their lush voices, and the effort they take to make original takes on Christmas songs. Dutch male vocal hero Thijs Boontjes joins the CP-duo.
On the album, to be released late November, the earlier singles appear (everyting in Dutch), duets with comedian Stefano Keizers, jazz singer Ruben Hein, folkster Lucky Fonz and a few tracks without back up singers. We've already heard it, and think it's B R I L L I A N T. Really. All reworked versions of known carols, xmas pop hits and more. Something to look out for, surely.

Welcome back! You're saying that the entire Clean Pete album is in Dutch, but you're also saying that it includes their previous singles. Both things can not be true as "Make It Til Christmas" (you're first link, there) is in English. Just sayin'. Again...welcome back. Now I know Christmas is just around the corner.

Eagle Eye Stubby. You're right. Make it Til Christmas was translated to Dutch for this album. 'Volhouden tot Kerstmis'
