This spring, Paul Simon will drop So Beautiful or So What, his first album of new material in five years. In support of this upcoming record, he has released a pair of videos for the holiday track, “Getting Ready for Christmas Day”.

The first video features the song’s lyrics aligning themselves sing-a-long style onto a church billboard while the second is an animated extravanganza.
