If you only listen to one thing this Christmas: Tinsel and Lights, by Tracey Thorn


I’ve mentioned my love of Tracey Thorn before and she hasn’t dissapointed with her new album, Tinsel and Lights. It even features a special guest appearance by Green Gartside – anyone else love Scritti Politti?

If last Christmas was all about Kate Bush’s 50 Words for Snow, then this year it’s all about Tracey -  and if you don’t already, follow her on Twitter.

Tracey also has a book coming in out in February next year called Bedsit Disco Queen: How I grew up and tried to be a pop star, which I can’t wait to read.

    Listened to snippets of the album on iTunes and was inexplicably sobbing before 8am! Tracks now downloaded and am following Tracy on Twitter. As ever, thank you…you, and coffee, are my essentials first thing every morning.

    Her version of “Hard Candy Christmas” is glorious…
