The Lad, the cult classic about a group of lads in a pub who get a holiday surprise when they’re mistaken for Santa, has just released its Christmas Special album.
It’s the first album by the hit UK indie group since the mid-1990s.
It comes just days after The Lad was granted a record contract by Warner Bros. and is slated for a Christmas release later this year.
The Lad is one of the UK’s most influential bands.
They were among the first acts to hit the US scene with The Hanging Tree and have sold more than 300 million albums worldwide.
They released their first album in 1989.
The Lad Christmas Special comes in three versions: 1) The Christmas album, 2) The Merry Christmas album and 3) The Lad Christmas special.
There are a few tracks from the Merry Christmas version in the video, but they aren’t the only tracks on the album.
For instance, “A Christmas Carol” features a guest appearance from Neil Patrick Harris, who plays the title role in the film.
