Celebrate Christmas in July with Nick’s first holiday album, Quality Street

Help us celebrate Christmas in July with a new Nick record, Quality Street – the kind of record that gives vulgar, tawdry commercialism a good name.

Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family is a twinkling blend of traditional hymns, forgotten gems and Lowe originals. From the opening rockabilly-charged “Children Go Where I Send Thee” and the comfy hush of “Christmas Can’t Be Far Away,” the record includes the beatnik bop of “Hooves on the Roof” (written especially for the project by Ron Sexsmith), Roger Miller’s wistful classic “Old Toy Trains,” before wrapping up with a ska-flavored take on “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day.”

Sample all 12 tracks now in the player below.

Pre-order the CD/LP and digital album via iTunes, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and visit the Yep Roc store for exclusive merch bundles including a holiday greeting card set and a snow Globe for delivery on or before October 29.  And if you buy one for your favorite Nick Lowe fan (or yourself), you can have it wrapped in exclusive Nick Lowe wrapping paper!

The CD/LP is also available via Proper Records outside the US and Canada.
