Andy Burrows has recorded them soundtrack to Channel 4's sequel to The Snowman, set to air on TV this Christmas.

Titled The Snowman and The Snowdog, the film will be broadcast over the festive period and features a soundtrack written and recorded by British composer Ilan Eshkeri and the former Razorlight drummer Burrows. It also features guest appearances from Muse’s Dom Howard, Ash’s Tim Wheeler, Tom Odell, Guillemots and Emmy The Great as well as a new version of Burrow's recent single 'Hometown', which you can hear below.

The theme from the original film, 'Walking In The Air' was first recorded in 1982 by Peter Auty, and was a hit for Aled Jones in 1985. The Maccabees also recorded a cover version of the song in 2010.

Kasabian and Noel Gallagher were originally linked to making the music for the film, though that rumour was soon denied by Kasabian, with Serge Pizzorno tweeting: "To all our beautiful fans out there, rest assured that there is no way were are doing a f***g Snowman cover. Sergio x"

Andy Burrows released his latest solo album 'Company' earlier this year.
