It’s soon to be the most wonderful time of the year! And in the old tradition, Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert invites you to gather round the fire for Ghost Stories for Christmas.

These are the ghosts of love, haunting happy homes and fairy-lit bars; these are the ghosts of memory, of haunted mirrors, pagan festivities, and unforgettable friends. Aidan Moffat’s quiet, pensive storytelling finds a perfect partner in RM Hubbert’s intimately intricate, flamenco-flavoured guitar. Across eight new original compositions and two deftly executed covers, here they offer a very alternative view on the Season To Be Jolly.

Stream the lead single A Ghost Story At Christmas, which has some fabulous lyrics…

“he’d check his breath before he phoned,
she’d fix her hair before she answered,
But the snow must turn to slush,
and then to water, then to steam,
Impermanence is certain,
happy endings just a dream,
Another silent night in bleak midwinter,
getting drunker, getting skinter”

It’s brilliant stuff. Any justice in the world and this becomes a Christmas classic!
