Ash frontman Tim Wheeler and Emmy The Great are set to take their Christmas album ‘This Is Christmas’ on the road.

Due for release on November 21, the album will be followed up with live dates in December, starting with a Rise in-store mini tour on December 10, which will see them playing branches in Worcester (1pm), Cheltenham (3pm) and Bristol (6pm). They then play London Bush Hall on December 14 and London Rough Trade East on December 15.

Speaking about the album, Tim said: "I'm a sucker for all kinds of Christmas songs from carols to Nat King Cole to '70s glam rock classics and '80s guilty pleasures, and it felt like a good time to contribute something new to the genre."

The album, which Tim and Emmy began recording last year after they were stranded in Sussex after missing several scheduled flights due to heavy snowfall, will feature nine original tracks and a Phil Spector cover. Tracks set to appear on the album include 'Mrs Christmas', 'Home For The Holidays' and 'Sleigh Me'.
