Former Army of Lovers Countess, Michaela de la Cour, has just put out a Christmas single. The not at all camp or in any way ridiculous ‘Xmas’.
A breathy succession of festive greetings condensed into a pop song and given a Balearic dance beat backing. It could only really come from an eccentric middle aged woman who made a name for herself by over-camping her contribution to her time as a member of Army of Lovers. The video is a hoot too, ranging from unbridled joy to sheer WTF.
When you listen to ‘Xmas’ and watch the video, you really can’t help but wonder, why DID she bother. But when it comes down to it, you’ve very glad that she did. We certainly are anyway. And we’re raising a glass of festive fizz in her honour.
‘Xmas’ is out now and has been released outside of Sweden too.
