It's Christmas Day - Zayn Adam is Giving Love Away

Merry Christmas, oh yeah!

There are a lot of Christmas songs that come out from under the covers at the end of the year.

The late Zayn Adam sang one for us in the 1980s which we circulated, sort of "internally", as a greeting card to our partners. The masters lay dormant for the last 25 years but producer Terence McCullagh dug the multi-track tape out of storage, when we were looking for some Zayn recordings to remix for a Power Ballads EP. Christmas Day was one of the tracks he found.

Zayn used to keep an ear open for local (South Africa based) writers for his releases. The aforementioned EP includes two such songs, scouted by him. One is this composition by Seva Diva and James Dowdles, who wrote the Christmas Day, specially for Zayn.

The lead vocal track is very powerful, which is why we included it of the Ballads EP release. 

McCullagh has added a lot of new production elements and made a single edit for this release. The release is now titled, Christmas Day, I'm Giving Love Away, and it will be available on all digital platforms from the 6th of November 2020.

You can gift it as a download to your loved one through -  iTunes.
