Singer/Songwriter Lindsey Mae Celebrates Christmas with John Lennon Classic

Having recently finished work on her upcoming debut album, singer/songwriter Lindsey Mae is getting into the spirit of the season by offering a free download of a holiday classic. On John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas,” she renders an austere treatment drawn out at a poignant, measured pace and—as it develops bit-by-bit—accentuated by discreet choral accompaniment. It’s a gorgeous performance, made all the more moving by how Lindsey Mae sings it. Sounding both solemn and consolatory, she invests this instantly familiar song with conviction and insight all her own.

Read An Interview with Lindsey Mae to learn more about this emerging artist, including her thoughts on her self-titled EP (available now) and her forthcoming, full-length debut (set for release early 2010).
