Yesterday (November 16), The Courteeners unveiled their charity Christmas single ‘Winter Wonderland.’

Described as “custom built for live shows” the track was written by frontman Liam Fray on Norah Jones’ piano in her New York home. In 2011 Fray was invited to play the song at an evening event in New York curated by Lou Reed.

The single was eventually recorded in September of this year. It was produced by Stephen Street, who also produced the band’s debut album ‘St Jude’ (2008).

All profits from the single will go to Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity. Listen to ‘Winter Wonderland’
