Eric Clapton releases Claymation video for White Christmas

Eric Clapton is premiering a Claymation video for his bluesy cover of the holiday classic, “White Christmas”, from his recently-released collection, “Happy Xmas.”

The project marks the guitarist’s first full-length Christmas album, which he co-produced with Simon Climie and features one of his own illustrations of Santa Claus on the record’s cover.

“Before this became a Christmas album,” Clapton explains, “there was an intention of doing a straight, normal studio album…and then it started to morph into the Christmas thing, and I think at that point it started to become a reality; and, for me, I’ve done something I’m really proud of, that I really believe in.”

“Happy Xmas” recently topped the US Holiday Album charts when the project debuted at No. 1 on the seasonal chart, which is published weekly from mid-October through early January each year.

Clapton will next be seen live during his 2019 series of shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The guitarist’s only UK performances next year will see him play three dates at the iconic venue in May, where he’ll be joined by a lineup that includes Chris Stainton, Nathan East, Doyle Bramhall and Sonny Emory.
