The Kills have recorded a version of the classic Christmas carol 'Silent Night' – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

The duo, who released their fourth studio album 'Blood Pressures' earlier this year, recorded the track for a live session with Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music.

Other artists to release covers of festive favourites this year include Lady Gaga, who recorded her own version of 'White Christmas', and Justin Bieber, who teamed up with Mariah Carey for a new take on 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'.

The likes of Super Furry Animals singer Gruff Rhys, She And Him and Emmy The Great and Ash's Tim Wheeler have also released yuletide-themed material this Christmas.

Earlier this month, Emmy The Great suggested that the glut of Christmas albums could be "a sign of the Mayan apocalypse".

In July of this year, The Kills' guitarist Jamie Hince tied the knot with his supermodel girlfriend Kate Moss. It was reported that Mosshart acted as 'best man' at the VIP-packed ceremony.
