Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on November 25, 2019
Sting has teamed up again with reggae star Shaggy, with whom he recorded the Grammy-winning 2018 album 44/876, for a reggae-flavored new holiday tune.
Titled “Silent Night (Christmas Is Coming),” the new song combines the yuletide classic “Silent Night” with a new original song.
Meanwhile, Sting and Shaggy will be featured giving the debut live performance of “Silent Night (Christmas Is Coming)” on the ABC television special Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration, which premieres on Thanksgiving, this Thursday, November 28, at 8 p.m. ET.
Last year, Sting and Shaggy mounted a major tour in support of 44/876, which went on to win the Best Reggae Album prize at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
