Female-fronted rock and metal band UPON WINGS is getting into the spirit of the holidays and has released a brand new Christmas single as a free download.
The song features vocalist Anne Erickson, guitar work and production by Kevin Jardine (Uplift Productions) and mastering by five-time Grammy-nominated Glenn Brown (Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, Marcus Miller, Nazareth, Spinal Tap).
“O Holy Night” marks UPON WINGS’ second holiday single. Last year, the band released an acoustic version of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel / God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” which can be heard HERE
“We were so thankful for the great response from last year’s Christmas song, so we decided to create another,” Erickson said. “These Christmas songs mark the first acoustic songs UPON WINGS has ever released, so they show a different side of the band.”
“This year, we put a new spin on the traditional Christmas song, ‘O Holy Night,’ with a unique arrangement,” she added. “We’re once again releasing it as a free download through Christmas as a ‘thank you’ to fans for their support.”
UPON WINGS’ new rock single will arrive in January 2020. The band’s upcoming EP promises some major guests.
UPON WINGS’ debut EP, 2013’s “Afterlife,” features guest vocals and production by Brett Hestla (Dark New Day, former Creed), guitars and production from Jardine, drums by Peter Tzaferis and mixing for the song “You Are My Weapon” by Corey Lowery (Seether, Saint Asonia). Recording sessions for the EP took place at Jardine’s Uplift Productions in Canada, Johnny K’s Groovemaster Studios in Chicago and beyond.
UPON WINGS'”O Holy Night” will be available as a free download through Christmas. The track will also be available for purchase and streaming via iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify and other digital outlets this week. Soli Deo Gloria.
