Pulled Apart By Horses have shared their cover of Slade’s ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ online.

Listen to the seasonal cover below, which will be officially released on December 8 as part of a split seven-inch with DZ Deathrays, who cover Mud’s ‘Lonely This Christmas’ on the flipside, which you can also hear below.

Pulled Apart By Horses join Wild Beasts, Tom Vek, Kindness, Wolf Alice and more on a new list of acts to receive government funding in order to promote their music around the world.

The acts have been chosen for the fourth round of the Music Export Growth Scheme, which will see the artists given a share of a £250,000 pot to help increase their international sales. The scheme started in October of last year, with more than £750,000 so far given to British bands including Metronomy, Young Fathers and Slow Club.
