Despite none of that happening, The Lutras could be on fire for a Christmas Number 1? It started off with so much purpose; big plans centred around tours, festivals and studio time. “Like the rest of the world, 2020 hasn’t been kind to us. Hopefully lots of other people can take joy from the record too. 

“But it’s not just about Christmas – people are losing their jobs, people are homeless, honest businesses are closing for good – this song is about supporting those that need it the most.”

The Lutras were crowned victorious at Firestone’s Road to the Main Stage competition last year and were expected to get time in the studio and tour the UK and Europe, as well as a spot at London’s All Points East Festival. Scottish rockers, The Lutras have released today, a truly breathtaking festive charity single ‘Give It Up For Christmas’. 

The quartet are immersed in the festive spirit where all proceeds will be split between the Music Venues Trust #saveourvenues campaign and Shelter. 

In collaboration with more than 40 musicians/artists, including Edinburgh’s Phoenix Choir, ‘Give It Up For Christmas’ has all the hallmarks of a Christmas classic; sleigh bells, horns and a positive message. “Give It Up For Christmas gave us some hope and a focus to recalibrate our own mental health. Of course, that all came crashing down with the Coronavirus,” the band explained. Share You can help make that happen whilst supporting these two great charities.
