Walking in the Air – Aled Jones sings with his younger self
Aled Jones returns to duet with himself on his brand new album on the Classic FM label. ‘One Voice at Christmas’ features a collection of the nation’s most treasured seasonal classics, including a brand new arrangement of Aled’s worldwide hit, ‘Walking in the Air’.
Following the massive success of One Voice earlier this year, Aled Jones returns with a brand new duet album titled One Voice at Christmas; a collection of popular classics including his worldwide smash, Walking in the Air, which was first a UK hit more than 30 years ago.
Aled Jones launched his new album at 18,000ft, singing Walking in the Air on a passenger jet:
Once again, Aled duets with his younger self in the second instalment of this unique concept. The discovery of the last-ever recordings Aled made as a boy have united his past and present voices, in a 13-track album featuring some of the nation's favourite Christmas songs.
Rearranged for 2016 by Howard Blake, Aled's Christmas smash hit Walking in the Air leads an album of traditional classics such as O Holy Night and O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. Other seasonal favourites including Away in a Manger, In the Bleak Midwinter and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. In a touching collaborative piece, Aled sings the Little Drummer Boy with the late Sir Terry Wogan. The album also includes a brand new setting of It Came Upon a Midnight Clear composed by Howard Goodall, and a duet with guitarist John Williams on Silent Night.
Released on 25th November on the Classic FM label, One Voice at Christmas reminds us why Aled is one of our most loved treasures - and voices!
