Paul McCartney, 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)' – Song Premiere

Rolling Stone

As part of the upcoming compilation Holidays Rule, Paul McCartney gears up for the season with a jazzy, smooth rendition of "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)." It's simple but affecting, with tinkling piano that intertwines with McCartney's caressing vocals on a welcoming version of the holiday classic.

Holidays Rule, out October 30th, also features contributions from the Shins, fun., Rufus Wainwright and Sharon Van Etten, Andrew Bird, Calexico, the Civil Wars and the Head and the Heart.
