Rachel Brown - "Santa Baby" (video) (premiere)

The singer-songwriter offers her own distinct take on the classic Christmas pop song.

Months after releasing her latest EP The Band, singer-songwriter Rachel Brown has recorded her own version of the sultry Christmas pop classic "Santa Baby", complete with a charming video that she also conceived and directed.

"Since 'Santa Baby' was originally recorded in 1953, I decided to pay homage by doing a one-take recording paired with a vintage-inspired music video," she explains. "For the video concept, I put a spin on a classic cooking show set-up by baking cookies for Santa made up of bizarre ingredients with an impossible result."
