Supergroup Unveil Christmas Single for Charity

Can you smell the aroma of pine needles, packing tape, cinnamon, and plastic in the air? All those smells must mean just one thing; Christmas is around the corner.

While we are still chocolate wasted from Halloween last week, many stores have already set up their Christmas displays while the Hallmark channel has already begun their two month-long tradition of playing Christmas movies non-stop. With all this Christmas around us, why wouldn’t a band release a Christmas single?

And that’s exactly what we go today with the premiere of a Christmas song titled “Must Be Christmas.” The track came courtesy of Better Than Ezra frontman Kevin Griffin and a slew of members from several bands such as Neon Trees, Fitz and the Tantrums, 311, Smallpools and more.

The supergroup of musicians are going by the Band of Merrymakers while all proceeds from the track, which is available for purchase on iTunes, will go to the MusiCares Foundation.

See, it’s all about the giving. Besides, how many times can you listen to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You” before wanting to set fire to your radio?

Check out the song below and maybe start getting into the Christmas spirit and buy the track instead of becoming a super Grinch.
