Alternative band American Authors has been getting into the holiday spirit and is excited to share their animated lyric video for “Christmas Karaoke”, out now here. The band recently performed the original track on Live with Kelly And Ryan, decked out in festive sweaters fitting for the time of year. In addition “Christmas Karaoke”, American Authors also shared a cover of the Christmas classic “Sleigh Ride” earlier this month. These songs celebrate holiday traditions and with them, American Authors is doing their part to serve up a little extra joy this holiday season.
Frontman Zac Barnett shares: “’Christmas Karaoke’ is probably the best Christmas song to come out since Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want For Christmas’, and what better way to celebrate our new holiday anthem than with a silly animated lyric video! Feel free to keep it on repeat while your crazy uncle drinks too much hot buttered rum this holiday season.”
Earlier this year American Authors pushed their limits with six different versions of their new single “Blind For Love”, and recently released a brand new music video for the track. Fans can look forward to more new music soon, as the band gears up to release a new album in early 2023.
“We’ve never been afraid to explore new musical genres but we always try to maintain a message of hope in our music,” states Zac.
It all comes together to present a vision of the band that’s at once recognizable and unfamiliar. For while Barnett does think some of the new songs “are even more in the genre of classic American Authors than a lot of other stuff we’ve done in recent history”, he also sees this next chapter as opening a new door and leaving the past behind.
“Nothing ever came easy for us,” Dave reveals. “We had this crazy dream and we had to do everything ourselves and keep working harder and harder every day to make those dreams a reality.”
