From all accounts, British pop singer and ’80s icon Kim Wilde really impressed during her recent – and long awaited – Australian co-headlining tour with Nik Kershaw.
But the pair isn’t quite finished working together, teaming up for a cover version of ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’ on Kim’s forthcoming festive set ‘Wilde Winter Songbook’.
Kim also duets with her dad Marty and brother Ricky on ‘White Winter Hymnal’ and even teams up with Rick Astley for a cover of ‘Winter Wonderland’, a duet Kim describes as being, “like a hot cup of tea and a digestive biscuit.”
Though there are half a dozen classic Christmas covers on the LP, it also features half a dozen originals, including ‘Hope’, ‘New Life’ and ‘Hey Mister Snowman’.
‘Wilde Winter Songbook’ will be released through MGM on Friday November 15.
