The first gift of Christmas arrives in a soulful package from Brooklyn Soul Stew. The Swedish band deliver a new festive single – I’m Gonna Make It Up To You and it’s the present we always hope for … a single with sweet horns, Pär Grells’ raspy, soul-drenched voice, and superb retro soul vibes!
As the fairy lights go up and ribbons of tinsel sparkle the season of joy offers some much-needed respite from an unexpectedly traumatic year. Christmas is also a time for thinking about others, and the songs’ theme a time for forgiveness and resolution.
/ When you’ve been deep down in the dirt, girl, it’s hard to wash away all of the stains / There is a new day dawning, and the sky is clear and blue / I promise you my darling / I’m gonna make it up to you /
Sven-Inge Sjöberg who previously wrote Christmas songs for Jill Johnson (Blue December), Lotta Engberg (Finally December), clearly has the spirit of the season with another song written for every this and every Christmas.
