Maps has collaborated with Mute label-mate Polly Scattergood to create a shimmering and melancholic cover of ‘In The Bleak Midwinter’ in anticipation of the fast approaching festive season.
Maps – aka James Chapman – and Polly explain:
“After our collaboration at the Mute Short Circuit Festival a few years ago we continued to hang out and write in the studio together. ‘In The Bleak Midwinter’ is one of our favourite Christmas songs so we decided to try our own version of it…And give it away as a present to say thanks for all the support this year.
Have a great Christmas…
See you in 2015!
Love MAPS and Polly Scattergood”
