Last winter, Eric Clapton released his very first holiday album. Happy Xmas, released via Surfdog Records, is a collection of standards and original compositions from the guitar legend, making up his 24th studio album and his first release since 2016’s I Still Do LP.
One of the album’s original tracks is “Everyday Will Be Like a Holiday,” a bluesy number in which Clapton, acting as the song’s narrator, describes how happy he will be when his beloved returns home. The song received an artistic music video treatment which premiered on Tuesday, which is a pretty smart way to reintroduce the Happy Xmas album to Clapton’s audience, a year or so after its initial release.
