LISTEN :: Mattie Safer (formerly of The Rapture) brings future gospel to “O Holy Night”December 14, 2010
Most of you might remember Mattie Safer as the former bassist for a little electro-dance group known as The Rapture. Since his departure from the aforementioned group, Mr. Safer has been working on some solo material and his first release comes in the form of the Christmas song “O Holy Night”.
In regards to the track Mr. Safer said:
I’ve included several different versions here. First, the main mix. It’s a Christmas song and as such it’s a little different, a little special, and thus not entirely representative of what I’ve been up to (anymore so than “Christmas In Hollis” is representative of what Run DMC’s entire catalog sounds like)., but it is probably indicative of a certain aspect of what I’ve been up to, and I like it. We been calling it “Future Gospel” for laughs, you can call it whatever you like…
I’ve also included a more traditional version, which features voice and guitar. This one is perhaps a bit more “Christmas-y.” More appropriate perhaps for the Christmas Eve fireside set.
Finally, I’ve included the acapella and instrumental tracks as tools for those of you who like that sort of thing.
