Internationally recognized praise band Planetshakers globally releases “A Very Merry Christmas” today (Nov. 26) from Venture3Media (V3M). Available now at all major digital and streaming outlets via HERE, the single features Planetshakers worship leaders Joth Hunt, Andy Harrison and Josh Ham along with the remarkable musical stylings of guitarist Mateus Asato and keyboardist Jesus Molina.
This jazzy, joyful new Christmas single celebrates family, togetherness and Jesus as the true reason for the season. Singing a blessing over families as he encourages listeners to join in on the chorus, Hunt wrote and produced the new song.
“Over the past couple of years, I have been modernizing Christmas carols, almost like remixing them with modern day production,” says Hunt. “As I was thinking about what I could do next, I thought it would be cool to have a modern take on ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas,’ so I wrote this original track. While producing ‘A Very Merry Christmas,’ I invited two of the greats in the industry, Mateus Asato and Jesus Molina, to lend their talents on guitar and keyboard respectively. The culmination of all this has become one very fun track to listen to and sing along with!”
“Christmas is about the One who came to give us life, joy, peace and so much more,” adds Planetshakers’ Joshua Brown. “We want our music to reflect the joy and life found in Christ, and there’s no better time than now to celebrate that with a Christmas song!”
