Peace cover Wham!'s 'Last Christmas' – listen
Birmingham band record their version of festive classic as UK tour kicks off in Nottingham tonight (November 29)
The band's cover comes with a video featuring Mystery Jets' Blaine Harrison and arrives as Peace begin their UK tour in Nottingham tonight (November 29).
Speaking about the decision to release the festive cover, frontman Harrison Koisser says in a statement, "About a week before it began, we realised our approaching UK tour ran straight in to the belly of the Christmas period. Despite our Scrugicidal tendencies, we found ourselves in a bout of excitement. A miracle perhaps? Anyway, we ended up pit deep in the festive moment and guided by the spiritual production of Blaine Harrison, we recorded a festive cover & shot some video doing it."
Peace released their debut album 'In Love' in March 2013.
