The Magic of Christmas Lies In Sam Smith’s Fresh Holiday Tune, “Night Before Christmas”
The “Unholy” singer captured Christmas’s beauty and true meaning in “Night Before Christmas,” lyrically. Similar to his popular hits like “Stay With Me” and “Too Good at Goodbyes,” the UK-born musician draws the listener’s attention to the song’s lyrical content, using imagery to paint a picture of a pleasantly warm Christmas.
“The treetops ar leaning / They’re covered in snow / The fire’s burning / And you’re nearly home / The bars are all empty / I can’t hear a soul / With everything closed now / There’s nowhere to go.”
“So happy to share this with you, ‘Night Before Christmas,'” the “Promises” crooner said in an Instagram post about the release. “This song was written by me and my beautiful and inspiring friend Simon Aldred. We wanted to make a Christmas song that felt like LOVE on Christmas Eve. I hope you can feel the warmth we felt when making it & I hope it gets you excited for the holiday season.”
Before Sam released the Christmas tune, he and Kim Petras dropped their certified platinum hit, “Unholy.” It’s impressive that Sam scaled back a bit to acknowledge this year’s holidays with his music.
“Night Before Christmas” is full of the love and warmth Sam wanted the song to emit to his listeners, reminding those that the holidays are more than just expensive gifts—although gifts are highly appreciated. It’s a time to appreciate your loved ones and cherish the moments around you.
Listeners are highly encouraged to listen to “Night Before Christmas,” available on all music streaming platforms. You are encouraged to add the track to their holiday playlists.
