Big Big Train – “Merry Christmas”

The UK’s Big Big Train has had a big year with two album releases and lots of accolades.  Now they are here to say “Merry Christmas” to their fans with a wonderful song set to a short film, starring actor Mark Benton.

Singer David Longdon says: ‘Merry Christmas is a song about rediscovering our childlike belief in the magic of Christmas, despite living in an over commercial and sometimes cynical world. After all, what wouldn’t you give to believe again, like you believed back then?’

Bass player Greg Spawton: ‘We wanted Merry Christmas to be a proper Christmas song, so it features the Big Big Train brass band, The Chapel Choir Choristers of Jesus College, Cambridge and, of course, sleigh bells.’

Actor Mark Benton who says: ‘When Big Big Train asked me to get involved with the video for Merry Christmas, I didn’t need much convincing. I’m a big fan of the band and love the way they tell stories through their beautifully crafted songs. This song is a real Christmas song with everything you need from choirs to sleigh bells. I’m playing triangle and kazoo on the next album but don’t tell the band because they don’t know it yet.’

You can view the film below:
