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. You can also download the song for free (and by “free”, I mean for your email address). However you decide to take this dose of Christmas cheer, it’s sure to be a nice reprieve from the ad nauseum rotation of “Santa Baby” and “Wonderful Christmastime” currently plaguing the world.
