Saint Etienne to release Christmas album
Saint Etienne have announced details of a Christmas album, set to be released this month.

The limited-edition 'A Glimpse Of Stocking' serves as a follow-up to the band's 1993 single 'I Was Born On Christmas Day'.

In a statement, the pop three-piece told fans: "After locking ourselves away for six weeks in deepest Surrey, on a diet of glogg and cheese footballs to get us in the spirit, we can announce that our long-promised Christmas album 'A Glimpse Of Stocking' is finally ready.

"It will mix seven old (some very rare) songs with seven brand new ones. All of the new ones are written by us except 'Wintertime Love', which was written by proto-goth legends The Doors."

Tracks set for the festive set include 'Unwrap Me', 'Gonna Have A Party' and 'Welcome Home'.

Limited to 3,000 copies, the album will not be available in shops but on mail order at three price points. A numbered CD costs £12, a special edition with a Christmas card signed by the band costs £16. For £150 fans can get the album, card plus an extra CD with a personally dedicated Christmas song sung by Sarah Cracknell.
