Watch EC's For Love On Christmas Day Video
Plus more broadcast dates for A Clapton Christmas now through December 25th!
Eric Clapton has released a video for his self-penned song, "For Love On Christmas Day." It's on his first holiday album, Happy Xmas, which also includes instantly recognizable holiday classics and lesser-known songs all done in EC's inimitable style.
"I had in my head that these holiday songs could be done with a slight blues tinge, and I started to figure out how to play the blues lines in between the vocals,” said Clapton, who co-produced Happy Xmas with longtime music producer Simon Climie. “I got it down and one of the most identifiable songs on the album, the one that became the foundational style, is ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’.”
Happy Xmas is available everywhere on CD, digital formats and as a limited edition deluxe box set at http://smarturl.it/EricClaptonHappyXmas.
You can watch "A Clapton Christmas" which features a sit-down interview with Eric Clapton and producer Simon Clime, two performance videos and two music videos now through Christmas Day on MTV Live and MTV Classic in North America. It's also available on YouTube.
