I am indeed a fan of downhere so of course I downloaded their very first full-length Christmas album. Today it debuts . Jeremy writes: “How Many Kings: Songs for Christmas” was a really fun album to do. We opted to self-produce this one which allowed us a lot of freedom to get creative and have fun in the process. For those of you who are familiar with downhere’s music, you won’t be disappointed: there are the trademark harmonies and piano combined with the theologically solid and well-crafted lyrics (there are 4 original songs on the album plus a new arrangement of “How Many Kings”). There are also a number of firsts on this album: Marc (who is French Canadian) sings French for the first time on a downhere record, I make my singing debut (don’t get too excited!), Jason’s dog makes an appearance, we record someone banging on a JUNO Award… just to name a few. Click the video below to watch a 6 minute “making-of” piece – Glenn did a great job putting it together. Click here to download the album directly from iTunes. I just downloaded, how about you?
