Irish singer on his favourite festive songs...
Gavin James

Gavin James has always been a fan of Christmas.

Time with your family, great food, the odd drink... what's not to like?

So when the Irish songwriter decided to cap another memorable year with a festive-themed EP it made complete sense.

Recently scooping the Best Breakthrough Artist at the A&R Awards, Gavin James also played a sold out show at Dublin's huge 3Arena.

'Winter Songs' EP is out now, and it finds Gavin covering a few of his favourite songs from the season of goodwill.

With that in mind, Clash invited the Irish artist to pick out a few more choice cuts for our Yuletime platter...

Ingrid Michaelson - ‘Winter Song’

This reminds me of Christmas when I was younger, it was always playing in my house!

- - -

Coldplay - ‘Christmas Lights’

Coldplay are one of my favourite bands, and this is an absolutely killer song!

- - -

Ryan Adams - ‘Hey Parker It’s Christmas’

I love the lyrics of this song!

- - -

The Pogues - ‘Fairytale Of New York’

This track has to be a Christmas staple in Ireland and I covered it at my headline show at 3Arena in Dublin. 13k people sang it with me which was an incredible moment.

Pearl Jam - ‘Someday At Christmas’

What an amazing cover!

- - -

Ramones - ‘Merry Xmas, I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight’

Legendary band and such an epic Christmas tune!

Gavin James - ‘White Christmas’

One of the all time classics that I covered on my 'Winter Songs' EP!
