Today sees the release of Grammy nominated troubadours The Lumineers' festive single 'Blue Christmas', available on all major platforms via Decca Records. The rework of the Elvis Presley festive classic sees the band in true holiday form, crafting their own sweetly-tinged yet distinctive take on one of the holiday's most endearing anthems. You can listen HERE.
Last night saw The Lumineers perform 'Blue Christmas' while partaking in one of the most exciting events of the holiday season, the prestigious 94th annual National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in President's Park (White House). This notorious American Holiday tradition took place on the Ellipse at President's Park and saw the band amongst other notable performers such as Garth Brooks and Chance the Rapper. You can visit www.thenationaltree.org for more information about the event and its history. The event follows the band being personally invited by President Obama to perform at the White House for this year's South by South Lawn festival in the summer.
Due to overwhelming demand The Lumineers have announced a second show at legendary New York venue Madison Square Garden, selling out tickets for the February 2nd show in mere hours. Renowned for their impressive live show, The Lumineers recently wrapped their second sold-out UK headline tour of the year to huge critical acclaim, with Evening Standard (4*) stating ""The Lumineers rootsy rock was endlessly entertaining, as each member demonstrated an impressive versatility" and The Times (4*) highlighting the fact "[Lead singer] Schultz shone and his band played out of their skins to keep up his momentum".
