Editors' frontman Tom Smith and former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows have collaborated on a Christmas album which they will release later this year.

The pair – who will go under the moniker of Smith & Burrows – have teamed up together to record the festive 'Funny Looking Angels', which will be released on November 28.

Songs set to appear on the LP include covers of Yazoo's 'Only You' and The Longpigs' 'On and On' , while Danish singer Agnes Obel will feature on the classic track 'The Christmas Song', which was most famously sung by Nat King Cole.

Burrows, who quit Razorlight in 2009 a year after the release of their third album 'Slipway Fires', also released his solo single 'If I Had A Heart' earlier this month. The track was his first release under his own name rather than his I Am Arrows pseudonym.

Editors, meanwhile, released their career-spanning box set 'Editors: The Complete Collection' earlier this year and are currently working on the follow-up to 2009's 'In This Light And On This Evening'.
