Today we reveal a secret, we’ve been keeping you for quite some time now: The 21st of November, we’ll release a Christmas album called “ENDURANCE IN CHRISTMAS TIME” that consists of 13 songs. As you might know, Hymns from Nineveh made a digital EP called Uncomplicated Christmassongs in 2009. These 5 songs will appear remastered on the album alongside alongside 8 new ones. It will be released on CD and on all digital platformes. You might think “Why make a new christmas album?!”. Well – I, the Hymnboy, felt an urge to write more songs about the both complex and wonderful Christmas time. It’s as simple as that. And – who says it isn’t possible to make 2 albums in one year? Why wait, if the songs are there, ready to burst out?
When you hear the word “Christmas album”, you might think about jinglebells and santa and elves and so on. I’m afraid this album will disappoint you, if that’s what you expect. These songs are about enduring the christmas time. How to deal with loss, loneliness or despair in the christmas time. But also – the songs discover what christmas is about, and what comfort and joy the christmas time can bring.
We’ve been working very hard and very, very fast (’cause – you know, we’re on tour and all) – but – we made it, and we’re very, very proud of the result.
We can’t wait to let you hear it.
