Last month New York singer-songwriter Odetta Hartman announced her brand new album Swansongs. The long-awaited second album will be released Friday 22nd March, 2024 on Transgressive Records.

Today, Odetta shares an original Christmas song to get into the festive spirit. On the standalone single “Christmas Together (Maybe Just This Year)” Odetta says:

“Holidays with the Hartmans are always a grand affair – we’ll take any reason to celebrate with delicious food, themed outfits, groovy music & good friends! On Christmas Eve 2020, my sister – Camellia – and I started a new tradition of hosting an online Holiday concert as a way to connect with our community and collaborators across the world in isolation. After two consecutive years of remote broadcasts, we were finally able to bring the show to a stage & last year got the band back together again for live performances in NYC and the Catskills. In addition to classic covers, we also debuted my original song, Christmas Together [ Maybe This Year ]. Inspired equally by Darlene Love’s Christmas [ Baby Please Come Home ] and Dolly Parton’s Christmas Without You, the sentiments of this new song hold out hope for joyful reunions and restore belief in the magic of the season. Camellia and I recorded the single with our dear friend, Billy Aukstik of Dala Records, leaning into his signature vintage production style with analog synths, disco strings, triumphant horns & velvety vocals. We hope this track helps set a cozy mood for all of your holiday needs!”
