GRAMMY Award-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE has unveiled 'Silent Night', their first Christmas release in over a decade. The band’s take on the iconic Christmas song is available to stream and download now. Watch a visualizer for the track below.
"In a year that has been both noisy and tumultuous, there is a deep desire within us all for some kind of peace on earth. Sickness and political unrest have ravaged our nation, causing us all to take stock in the things that matter most to us. With December around the corner, we hope this song takes you back to happy times with the ones you love and that this holiday season brings you joy, laughter, and hope,” the band shared.
“Silent Night” follows NEEDTOBREATHE’s critically acclaimed new album Out of Body, which was released in August and debuted in the top 5 across three Billboard charts. The album is available physically and digitally via Elektra Records/Centricity Music. Limited edition Christmas bundles are available exclusively through NEEDTOBREATHE’s online store.
Last month, NEEDTOBREATHE released a brand new version of the album’s current single “Who Am I” featuring vocals from multi-platinum recording artist, Elle King. “Who Am I” (feat. Elle King) is available to stream and download as an official Out of Body bonus track now.
Out of Body has received critical acclaim from Billboard, People, Spin, Taste of Country, and more. American Songwriter commended the band's “phenomenal and dedicated songwriting”, and Southern Living crowned the group “our favorite Southern rock band.” All Music praised Out of Body as “their tightest and most consistent set in years,” adding “this is an album designed to empower and motivate through life’s tough times." In September, NEEDTOBREATHE took the stage at CBS This Morning Saturday to deliver the network television debut performances of “Hang On”, “Who Am I”, and “Survival”.
Leading up to the album’s release, NEEDTOBREATHE released a trio of Jared Hogan-directed official music videos for “Hang On”, "Who Am I”, and “Mercy’s Shore”. Earlier this month, the band unveiled an official music video for “Banks” directed by Chris Phelps.
