Karmin Cover Christmas Tune ‘Sleigh Ride’
America’s cutest engaged pop music couple just got even more sugary sweet with the release of their own Christmas song. Nick Noonan and Amy Heidemann of Karmin have premiered their version of the holiday classic ‘Sleigh Ride.’
“We were looking for one that we thought nobody had done or over-covered, and then we also wanted to find one that we could put our little Karmin reggae twist with rapping on,” Amy told Ryan Seacrest (via Rap-Up). “And that was the one that worked.” Nick said of the original ‘Sleigh Ride,’ “It was super stupid catchy, so we were like, ‘Hey, I think we could make this fun.’”
Karmin’s ‘Sleigh Ride’ is spunky and vibrant. The couple share vocal duties, and Heidemann even gets to throw in one of her cheeky raps in which she references gingerbread, eggnog, candy canes, fireplaces, and the Pillsbury dough boy.
Karmin got into the holiday spirit with a performance at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the video they filmed (above) is part of Coach’s current holiday campaign. You can download the song for free over on Coach.com. (Rachel Zoe styled them for the video, too!)
The singers are working right now on their next album as they seek to follow-up their successful debut ‘Hello.’
