The Christmas season is in full swing and musicians have come out of the woodwork bearing their own little gifts of holiday cheer. Yesterday, we saw Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O show off her sweet tooth with her take on the classic “Marshmallow World”. Now, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, aka The Both, have revealed an original song called “Nothing Left To Do (Let’s Make This Christmas Blue)”.
Much like the tracks found on the duo’s self-titled debut, the holiday number highlights their charming chemistry and knack for minimalistic, yet poignant songwriting. Listen in below via Spotify and/or purchase through iTunes.
As we previously noted, The Both have lined up a string of holiday shows in December, complete with special guests like Tim Heidecker and John Hodgman. See the full schedule below.
