Nicole Atkins Puts the Soul in “O Holy Night”

Nicole Atkins has announced the release of her soul rendition of “O Holy Night” via Paste. The track appears on Amazon Music’s “Christmas Soul” playlist, which will be available exclusively for streaming on Amazon Music—both Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music—beginning on Nov. 24. Listen to the track here.

Of the song, Atkins says: ““O Holy Night” has always been my favorite Christmas song. The first time I heard it, I burst into tears because it was so powerful. I think it was the first time I cried from music taking me over. I always wanted to record this song in a style that made it more human in a way that it could bring the message to the angels from the earth rather than the song already residing up in heaven.”
