Christmas wouldn’t be the same without Christmas music. In the same way that as a band, we love to set old hymns in new contexts, we’ve done that with “What Child is This?” Written in 1865 by William Chatterton Dix.
We’ve put demo together in preparation for our the release of our Christmas album in November 2014.
This is just something that I found in some old recordings that I had done. If a song that I write goes far enough to get to this point, it’s a pretty good sign that I’ll do something more with it, but it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe we’ll reimagine it as a By The Mane tune and see what happens. I wrote most of it myself, but brought it to a songwriting session with Mike Hohnholz and Marc Wymore where I was inspired those amazing guys!
