Courtesy of The Empty HeartsThe all-star rock group The Empty Hearts, which features members of The Cars, Blondie and The Romantics, recently released a holiday single featuring two original yuletide tunes — “It’s Christmastime” and “Joyful Noise.” You can listen to “It’s Christmastime,” a catchy tune with production reminiscent of producer Phil Spector‘s classic holiday records, now on YouTube.
In addition, you can catch The Empty Hearts performing the new single on the 85th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade special, which gets an encore screening today at 3 p.m. at 3 p.m. ET/PT on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.
The Empty Hearts lineup features Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Cars guitarist Elliot Easton and Romantics singer/guitarist Wally Palmar, as well as bassist Andy Babiuk of the veteran garage band The Chesterfield Kings. You can purchase a signed CD copy of the group’s “It’s Christmastime” single via TheEmptyHearts.com, while digital versions of the tracks are available at iTunes and Amazon.
“It’s Christmastime” and “Joyful Noise” are the first new releases from The Empty Hearts since the band’s self-titled debut album hit stores in August 2014.
