Well, Halloween is over and done with and November is here, which means one thing: Christmas music is now inescapable. Getting in on this year’s annual festivities of compiling new holiday-themed albums/playlists is Amazon. Hitting the digital shelves November 24, Amazon’s new curated playlist titled Christmas Soul will feature a huge list of modern “soul” artists (a lot of which aren’t necessarily soul artists).
The first track shared from this upcoming playlist comes from underground rapper Open Mike Eagle. His new song, titled “Snowsuit,” isn’t quite the joyous, bright new Christmas song you might be wanting, but it’s really great nonetheless. The track feels steeped in personal nostalgia, following along what it was like to celebrate the holiday in the ghetto. Oh, and as always Open Mike Eagle is on top of his game. Get in the spirit early and stream the song right here.
Open Mike Eagle’s excellent new album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream is out now.
