Lucy Spraggan has released a stunning take on Mariah Carey‘s All I Want For Christmas Is You.
A unique new take on a Christmas classic, Lucy’s version feels heartfelt and timeless as she makes the song her own. Lucy says: “I’d been thinking about doing a Christmas cover but couldn’t think of the right song. A friend suggested I do a song that is as far away from my normal sound as I could get – All I Want For Christmas Is You. I read the lyrics and realised that it is actually a really wonderful love song and so I thought: ?I know what to do with this!? I’m not sure I can match the red mini Xmas ski suit Mariah wore in the video for the original? But never say never!?“
It has been nine-and-a-half years since Lucy wandered onto The X Factor stage to begin what would become an extraordinary journey.
That first year she was the most Googled musician and 4th most watched video in the world. Since then, Lucy has combined a tenacious work ethic with brilliant song-writing ,dual skills which have led to sold out tours across the globe and more than 100 million streams.
All I want for Christmas is out NOW via Lucy’s own label Little Pig Music via The Orchard. Let us know what you think of the track on @tbhonest_uk!
She is known as a complex singer-songwriter and emotive wordsmith, whose songs and stories chime with the listeners heart and emotions. Whether they are happy or sad, funny or thought provoking, Lucy’s music provides listeners with a direct link between her songs and their own life stories.
