The deluxe version of the band's latest studio album, 'One Day At A Time', is out now.
After the success of their recently released studio album One Day At A Time, Kodaline are trying their hands at a festive single, called 'This Must Be Christmas,' for which they have shared the official video.
Originally released on the same day as the deluxe edition of their latest album, the new video for ‘This Must Be Christmas’ sees the band deliver a heartfelt tale for the festive season.
This song marks the band's very first Christmas single, and the new visual blends the magical world of Santa’s Workshop with a sombre message about the difficulties many are facing after the general insanity of the year we've had.
"The track is essentially about drowning your sorrows in a pub at Christmas, and I loved how the band had put their own stamp on the traditional Christmas song," said Lee Holmes, the video's director. "So for the video I wanted to create that Christmas feel but with a twist, playing on the idea that Santa's elves are like seasonal workers who live amongst normal people during the year, until Christmas comes. And in these uncertain times it makes sense that their job security is in the balance, just like the rest of us. Kodaline have such a great track record for music videos, so it was a privilege to get to work with them and create a video for their alternative Christmas vision."
