Trending Now

Status Quo are set to release their first ever festive single, “It’s Christmas Time”, and it’s taken them 75 singles to do so.

The band who are celebrating 40 years in the music business this year, will release the Rick Parfitt-penned track on December 1.

Available as a digital download, and CD single, “It’s Christmas Time” will also be issued as a limited edition 7″ picture disc backed with “Pictures of Matchstick Men” and “Ice In The Sun”.

Rick Parfitt commenting on their first Xmas song says: “Everyone seems to think that Quo have done Christmas singles before but we never have and, after forty years, we thought we should. It’s always been my favourite time of the year and we wanted to bring out some of the old Christmas spirit. Another motivation was to try and keep ‘X Factor’ off the top spot but now it looks like it might be the comedians we have to watch out for!”
