On Friday, Suzi Quatro — known in music history as the first “breakout” female bass player to become a bona fide “rock star” with a string of international hits in the 1970s — released a powerful new holiday song, “My Heart and Soul (I need You Home for Christmas).”

Coming on the heels of her 2019 album No Control, the inspiration for “My Heart and Soul” struck her like a bolt of lightning, and the result was shared on Friday in the form of a music video heavy on warm home movies and memories of the holiday season throughout the years:

Explained Suzi Quatro of the song’s process in a statement:

“So, lockdown had just begun. My son was in the studio working on ideas every day for our next album, a perfect opportunity as neither of us was ‘on the road’. I was sitting on the patio, relaxing, and heard this absolutely beautiful track coming out of the open studio door. It was a bass line, with a sparse guitar chord, and drums. It was immediate for me. I ran into the studio (mask on of course), and told my son to set up a microphone, and without thinking, without writing anything down, I sang the first 4 lines of the song exactly as they ended up. That`s when you know you have a great song … and we do. Merry Xmas everyone!“

Quatro’s 2019 album, No Control, featured 11 tracks showcasing her versatility and resilience over the years. If you haven’t yet given the record a listen, do so below via Spotify (and pick up a copy from our Rock Cellar Store by clicking here):
