Rob Halford Posts Cover of Holiday Classic, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”
Metal God and Instagram kingpin Rob Halford has released the second single from his upcoming holiday album, Celestial, a punk cover of the holiday standard, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” And you guys, I gotta say: this Jew is learning so much about Christmas through Halford’s upcoming album! When he shared a brand new track called “Donner & Blitzen” last month I learned that those are the names of two of Santa’s reindeer, and today I learned (TIL, as the kids say) a Christmas standard I’d never heard before. Who ever said metal couldn’t be educational?
Celestial, credited to Rob Halford with Family and Friends, will come out on October 18 via Legacy Recordings; pre-order here.
