From "Last year, around this time, while we were in the studio recording 'Last of the Great Pretenders', we (mike, aaron, jake, chris & i) recorded this song for my annual mailing list x-mas song. it actually turned out to be one of my favorite recordings I've ever done… it’s just loose and off the cuff and it totally makes me smile every time i hear it. it’s a cover of “father christmas” by the kinks which, after ‘fairytale of new york’ by the pogues, gets my vote for the best xmas song EVER. anyway, wanted you all to hear it. and have it… click through to the actual soundcloud page to download it. just click the download button and, boom, it’s yours."
