Boris Share Cover of ‘Last Christmas’

Spread the love


Boris have shared a new two-track Christmas single entitled Noël, which is available exclusively through Bandcamp via Sacred Bones. It includes Boris’ take on Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’, as well as a rework of Boris’ New Album track ‘Pardon?’ by London-based singer-songwriter Lauren Auder and French producer Dviance. Take a listen below.

“When Lauren Auder replied to our post and told us ‘I love this album very much,’ we were very excited,” Boris stated in a press release. “We really like Lauren’s voice, atmosphere, music and video work. We replied back that we would like to work together someday soon. New Album is an album that has received various criticisms before, however, like Lauren, we also happen to love this album very much. Now, ten years later, we have asked Lauren to sing a new interpretation from it.”

Auder added: “I’ve been a long-time fan of Boris’s work and New Album has been particularly influential on my musical style. When this came up, Atsuo from the band proposed I take a shot at making a new version of the track. I was at the time working on my debut full length with my long-time co-writer Dviance and knowing how much he has also been inspired by Boris’ work it only made sense for us to work on this one together. I’m extremely excited for this to have come together and hoping to continue this collaboration in the future.”

Commenting on their cover of ‘Last Christmas’, Boris said: “This is a Christmas present for everyone who lives with the various restrictions stemming from COVID-19. Here in Japan, it is customary to give gifts at Christmas. We hope this Christmas will be the ‘Last Christmas’ of COVID-19.”
