The 12 Downloads of Christmas

After a fallow December in 2017 – when amongst other things I was finishing the Winterland EP and Volcanoes – the 12 Downloads of Christmas return in full festive form for Christmas 2018.

First appearing in 2011, the 12 Downloads sees a rare DK track – a live recording, cover, remix or newbie – posted on each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas. This aural (half) advent calendar, is available for you to stream until New Year or, better still, for you to download and keep for free!

The first of the 12 songs for this year was recorded at the Volcanoes album launch in February, and is the title track of that album. You can hear that song and the others, as they’re posted, by clicking below:

The 12 songs will be posted on the Douglas Kay Soundcloud page and you can access the tracks as soon as they’re posted by clicking HERE.

The Winterland EP is available now – see below for links to different listening formats and for the official video, filmed in a very festive-looking (and cold) Edinburgh.
