FRESH: ‘It’s Gonna Be A Cold, Cold Christmas’ – Nicki French

Nicki French is all set for Christmas with her sparkling single “It’s Gonna Be A Cold, Cold Christmas”!

Hot on the heels of her fantastic album “Glitter to the Neon Lights“, Nicki French pulls her Christmas cracker on 10th December and treats us to her new single! You’ll be reaching for the mince pies and gathering around the fire – “It’s Gonna Be A Cold Cold Christmas”!

Nicki’s career rocketed in 1995 when her dance version of “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” stormed the global charts, resulting in a top 2 smash both sides of the Atlantic and selling in excess of five million copies – a mean feat not repeated by many to this day. After two hit albums and numerous single releases, she then represented the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2000 with “Don’t Play That Song Again” which propelled her back into the media spotlight.

A plethora of singles and albums graced dancefloors the world over in the years that followed, then in 2015 Nicki released what would become one of her most popular tracks to date, when “This Love” became a Summer anthem and Pride favourite. This was followed by the original disco stompers “Teardrops (on the Disco Floor)” and “Steal The Crown”, both hitting the top spot of the UK vocal iTunes charts. Her recent single “On Your Marks, Get Set, Go Away” launched the new album “Glitter To The Neon Lights” in November 2018, which is currently riding high in the charts around the globe.

Originally released on the “A Very Nicki Christmas” album last year, this stunning remake of the Dana classic has been revamped and remixed by top Dutch producer Matt Pop. It has been packaged up with a beautiful new orchestral version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” from Pete Ware to become the new soundtrack for wrapping presents and entertaining family at this truly magical time of the year.

So, pour yourself a glass of fizz, turn it up and enjoy – Merry Christmas!

“It’s Gonna Be A Cold Cold Christmas” is released on Monday 10th December 2018 on CD single from the Energise Records store and across the digital download and streaming platforms (iTunes, Spotify etc).

Single Release (10th December 2018):
1. It’s Gonna Be A Cold Cold Christmas
2. It’s Gonna Be A Cold Cold Christmas (Matt Pop Extended Mix)
3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (Pete Ware Orchestral Mix)

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
