Praise Be It’s Christmas smashes 3.5m plays

Trickster’s debut smash Christmas hit has now passed 3.5m plays as this year’s hit festive single, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The song focuses on current hardships, referencing pandemics, the cost of living crisis, Elon Musk and more. Its verse says: “Interest rates are rising fast, there’s monkey pox with covid and SARS / And strange smooth faced multi-billionaires, trying to build a house on Jupiter or Mars.”

“It was an interesting challenge to write a Christmas song that reflects the tensions and stresses that we are currently living under, but with ‘Praise Be It’s Christmas’ I think we’ve achieved it,” Chambers said in a statement.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Ian Maclay added: “It was great to work with Guy Chambers who is such a respected and legendary figure in the music business, and we hope that this recording receives the attention it deserves.”
