Hear Leo Sayer and his band cover ‘Happy Christmas (War Is Over)’


Leo Sayer shared a cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s festive classic, “Happy Christmas (War Is Over)”, which he and his band recorded live in one take. Listen to it below.

The musician posted the track yesterday (December 23) on Facebook, explaining that he and his band recorded it last month at Sunshine Recorders in South Melbourne. It was done live in one take with a few overdubs.

“We thought it was time to give back to all the fans, friends and supporters here in Australia (and everywhere else too!) Who made this year so special for all of us,” Sayer wrote.

The veteran artist released his 15th studio album, ‘Selfie’, in April. Sayer did most of the solo recording, writing, performing, producing and arranging all but three tracks himself in his home studio, as Newcastle Herald Remarks. “When you are on your own, you become an echo of everything you’ve heard, but you also become an echo of some of the tricks you’ve learned,” he told the publication.

Earlier this month, Sayer revealed he had already started working on new music, recounting South African Radio East Coast Gold that residing in Australia – where he has lived since 2005 – has given him the “model” for “being creative and getting [his music] the low”.
