Earlier this year, an exhibition at London’s Design Museum explored the visual world behind some of electronic music’s most iconic acts, including The Chemical Brothers.
Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers ran from April 1 to July 26 and explored “the hypnotic world of electronic music, from its origins to its futuristic dreams.”
Meanwhile, a host of artists have already shared a number of festive releases, including Snoop Dogg, Sam Smith, John Cooper Clarke, JMSN, Shaggy, Robbie Williams and Justin Bieber.
Alanis Morissette recently covered John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”. The Canadian singer-songwriter has recreated the iconic visuals from the 1971 track as well as stayed true to the original in sound.
For the final night of Hanukkah, meanwhile, Haim gifted fans with their first-ever holiday song, “Christmas Wrapping 2020 (All I Want for Christmas is a Vaccine).” The track offered a timely-spin on The Waitresses’ “Christmas Wrapping,” and featured deliciously witty lyrics by the Tony-nominated actor and playwright Jeremy O. Harris. Additional contributions to the song were made by Thundercat (on bass), saxophonist Henry R. Solomon (who also appears on “Summer Girl”), and long-time collaborator Buddy Ross (keyboards).
Fans can also catch HAIM moonlighting on Taylor Swift’s new album, Evermore, on the track “No Body, No Crime.”
