If you’re a fan of pop rock or rap rock music, you’re probably a fan of the Columbus, Ohio, group Twenty One Pilots.
The band is made up of the musical duo Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, best known for their singles “Stressed Out” and “Ride”, both featuring on the xRhythms playlist.
Their first-ever original holiday single.
Now, the pair have come with a special gift this season, their first-ever original holiday single, “Christmas saves the year”.
Released on the 9th of December, they made their announcement on Twitter following the band’s Christmas stream on Twitch to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Much like their 2018 album ‘Trench’, this jolly Christmas anthem was written and recorded in Tyler’s home studio. “From us to you, merry christmas” wrote the band.
The lyrics speak optimistically about this festive season after the pandemic.
The lyrics speak optimistically about this festive season after the pandemic, “'Cause everybody wants to makе it home this year / Even if thе world is crumblin' down… / You rest assured that Christmas saves the year”.
Though this is their first original Christmas single, they have previously performed covers of Christmas classics including “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Jingle Bells”, and “O Holy Night”.
In 2014 Tyler, performed "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" at the Christmas With The Stars performance at Five14 Church in Columbus, Ohio.
Though it has been a tough year for many, the heart of this single and it’s infectious holiday cheer might just put a smile on your face.
