Katy B has covered the festive classic, ‘Sleigh Ride’.

Scroll down to listen to her take on Phil Spector produced The Ronettes track. Katy B’s version was recorded for Rob da Bank’s Christmas Party, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 over the weekend, via Pitchfork. The Ronettes track originally featured on the 1963 album ‘A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector’.

Katy B will release her upcoming second album, ‘Little Red’ on February 3, 2014. It follows her 2011 debut ‘On A Mission’. In addition to the singles ‘Crying For No Reason’ and ‘5 AM’, Katy B’s collaboration with Jessie Ware, ‘Aaliyah’, which was first heard on 2012’s ‘Danger’ EP, features on the album as does a new track with Sampha titled ‘Play’. Producers on the album include George FitzGerald, Jacques Greene, Joker, Route 94 and Artwork.

Speaking about the then-untitled ‘Little Red’ earlier this year, she revealed it would be “a bit more… this is real life”. She added: “There are still going to be lots of songs about me and my little adventures around London, but then at the same time I’ve had experiences in love and life that have been about this period of my life.”
