David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and The Lightning Seeds have recorded a new version of their iconic football anthem “Three Lions (It’s Coming Home for Christmas)” for the 2022 World Cup. Inspired when England Women won the Euros this summer, that they re-recorded the track with new lyrics and an audio clip of the Lionesses triumphant press conference rendition of the song.
In the feel good video, Sir Geoff Hurst swaps his England kit for a Santa Suit, Lioness heroes Jess Carter and Beth England recreate their celebratory dance, while David, Frank and the Lightning Seeds decorate the tree as kids join in the festivities.
“Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home)” is the only song to have ever become UK number one on four separate occasions with the same artists, twice in 1996 when it was originally released, for three straight weeks in 1998 and again in 2018 when it made chart history by moving up from number 24 to number one in one week!
