Listen to Fozzy singer and WWE superstar Chris Jericho sing The Kinks’ “Father Christmas”

Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho has never released a holiday single, but that all changed this season. The metal vocalist and WWE superstar has unleashed his own version of The Kinks’ 1977 single “Father Christmas.” Listen to the song — which was recorded with a special, holiday band Jericho calls the Christmas Helves — below.

“I’ve always wanted to do a Christmas song, as it’s guaranteed annual airplay (and if I hear ‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ one more time, I’m gonna stuff myself down a chimney),” Jericho said in a statement. “So I put together the musical assassins known as The Christmas Helves and banged out this sugarplum version of my favorite Kinks tune!”

Jericho’s cover of “Father Christmas” is currently available for digital download via Apple Music, Amazon Music and all the usual digital outlets. Proceeds raised from the sale of the song will be donated to the JDRF for juvenile diabetes research.

In other news, Jericho and his band Fozzy released a new song called “Nowhere to Run.” The band kept fairly quiet in 2019, but they are expected to release a new studio album next year, which will mark their follow-up to 2017’s “Judas.”
