THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes gifts us all with Eagles of Death Metal Presents A Boots Electric Christmas, a six-track EP sure to bring much needed holiday cheer to the ears and hearts of every little girl and boy.
Hughes puts his signature aural alter-ego Boots Electric stamp on a half-dozen electrified interpretations of perennial holiday classics that include God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Put A Little Love In Your Heart, O Holy Night, Little Drummer Boy and Little Town Of Bethlehem. The sonic highlight rounding out the EP is an extraordinary, and quite stirring, a cappella rendition of O Holy Night featuring Hughes and EODM bandmate Joshua Homme on vocals.
“Just a few songs to warm your heart during Christmas time. I hope you like them. May Christmas bring peace to you all. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, I love you, and God bless you all,” Hughes says of this new, winter-wonderful holiday EP.”
