I know Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier with every year, but surely releasing a Christmas album in October is pushing it? What's worse is that 'The Christmas Waltz', the opening track from She & Him's forthcoming Christmas album A Very She & Him Christmas, is unveiled now, around about 11 weeks before the actual day!

Timing issues aside, this is pretty much what we all expected, right? A lovely sounding Christmas song from a confident duo, and as much as I won't be playing it right now, come the end of November I'll probably play it on repeat while I'm sat by a fire, drinking some brandy.

Is it as good as this though?

A Very She & Him Christmas is out on Merge Records on October 24th
