Artist Andy BurrowsSong title Light The Night (The Snowman and The Snowdog)
Year 2012Genre(s) Alternative
Former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows has teamed up with film composer Ilan Eshkeri to produce his latest single 'Light The Night' which serves as the official soundtrack to 'The Snowman' sequel 'The Snowman and The Snowdog'.
Accompanying this soaring number is a tear-jerker of a video featuring one little boy who wishes to be able to fly like the famous snowman in 'The Snowman and The Snowdog'. No matter how hard he tries, with his array of flight devices from helium balloons to a rudimentary cape, he simply cannot lift his feet off the ground. When a little girl who he is forced to play with takes pity on him and makes a wish on the star on top of the Christmas tree, everything changes. She finds his bed empty in the middle of the night and on his appearance in the morning, he is holding the tree star which he could not have normally retrieved by himself. The song has everything needed for a great Christmas song never mind a movie soundtrack. The tinkling introduction and classical instrumental throughout truly reaches the heart and the ever-building crescendo adds to the mystery and wonder that is this wonderful movie.
This isn't the first Christmas effort from Andy Burrow; in 2011 he released the seasonal album 'Funny Looking Angels' which included the single 'When the Thames Froze' with Editors frontman Tom Smith. Burrows has called his current project 'a dream come true' and insists 'working with the same team who were responsible for the original film has been such a fantastic experience'.
