The Grammy-nominated British musician released his festive album, The Pianoman at Christmas, last year and has now shared a deluxe version.
To celebrate the occasion (and the holiday season, of course), he performed three songs from the record: “Christmas Don’t Let Me Down”, “The Jolly Fat Man” and “Beautiful, Altogether”.
Watch the session below:
In an interview with The Independent last year, Cullum explained that his wife, author and foodwriter Sophie Dahl, helped inspire him to make a Christmas album.
“She was there the whole time while I was writing – it was very romantic,” he said.
“My goal was to make something that would still feel good in 50 years’ time – a record you look forward to taking out of your collection, like I do with the Christmas albums I love,” he continued. “It was a licence to dig into all of that music with total geekery.”
The Pianoman at Christmas – The Complete Edition is out now.
