‘Joy' is the second single to be released from Tracey's acclaimed album of modern and retro Christmas classics, 'Tinsel and Lights’. Produced by Ewan Pearson it also features Tracey's long-time partner in Everything But The Girl, Ben Watt, on guitar.
The stand-out track for many writers reviewing the album ( **** The Guardian, **** Uncut, **** Q), it is a Tracey Thorn original that stands among her finest songs, ‘recasting Christmas,’ writes Jim Writh in Uncut ‘as a desperate, defiant celebration of life’.
A new stripped-back acoustic version with Ben Watt on guitar will also feature as part of the release.
A video for the song is being shot in the centre of one of Christmas’s quintessential locations – Lille Christmas Market in Northern France.
