The Midtown Men Record 'All Alone On Christmas' to Benefit the Red Cross
On the heels of an incredible performance at the Right 2 Rock charity event honoring "Little Steven" Van Zandt at the Hammerstein Ballroom alongside rock legends Bruce Springsteen, Dion, Elvis Costello, & Tom Morello, - acclaimed singing group THE Midtown Men are thrilled to announce the release of their holiday single, "All Alone On Christmas."
The track is currently available for purchase at iTunes, and in light of the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, 100% of all digital download proceeds from "All Alone On Christmas" will go to the American Red Cross by THE Midtown Men to help aid in all relief efforts throughout the end of the year.
The original version of the track was written and produced by Van Zandt (founding member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, producer, arranger, record producer, actor, writer, human rights activist, and international radio DJ) and was recently given a rocking new arrangement for THE Midtown Men. Not only did Stevie create a new arrangement of this classic holiday tune for THE Midtown Men, but he also plays guitar on the single with musicians from the E Street Band. Truly a remarkable collaboration.
"Sometimes the best projects are the ones that are the most unlikely," says Steven Van Zandt when speaking about working with The Midtown Men. "And quite often, like this one, they turn out to be the most fun. So here it is. And with this record, I'm sure you'll agree that they have conquered the recording studio the same way they took Broadway. The Midtown Men have arrived."
