Crack of Dawn Capture the Spirit of Motown Christmas With Festive Release
Funk-soul legends Crack of Dawn are proud to announce their tribute to the Motown Christmas hits of old with their festive single, It’s Christmas Time. Featuring the velvety soul tones which have made them Canada’s most celebrated soul act over the last 40 years, it’s a track packed with everything which makes this time of year so special and is guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most committed Scrooge!

With the music written by keyboard player Bela Hajmann and lyrics by regular sax player, Alvin Jones, It’s Christmas Time encapsulates all aspects of Christmas in the same way the classic songs of the 50’s and 60’s did, combining positive imagery with emotion and an effortlessly catchy melody. Inevitably, Crack of Dawn can’t help but make Christmas that little bit funky too!
Crack of Dawn were the first black band to be signed to a major label (CBS), having been discovered by Otis Redding’s producer and outsold their contemporaries, Earth, Wind and Fire in Canada. Their recent album, “Spotlight”, features a breath-taking combination of grindingly deep funk (“Booby Ruby”); guitar and horn-led sunshine soul (“Crack of Dawn”); the wah-wah-drenched glory of “Somebody’s Watching You” and their hugely popular single, the uplifting, back to the future jazz-soul of “Ol’ Skool”.
Lyrics It’s the season…some people travel a long, long way Oh, it’s the reason...to be with loved ones on this special day It’s Christmas (Christmas) Listen to all the children sing I know some people say, they don’t care about Christmas Day But deep inside my heart I know it’s where this feeling starts It’s Christmas time, all the bells are ringing It’s Christmas Time, all the children singing It’s Christmas Time, people all out shopping It’s Christmas Time, time to stuff those stockings In our heart of heart, we all are one Spread joy all your love to everyone.. It’s for the King of Kings (let’s rejoice) Celebrating with the family in joy, the love they bring And in this season, we travel a long, long way This is the reason, to be with loved ones on this day (This holiday, holiday) (We Love Today) love today and everybody sing… It’s Christmas time, all the bells are ringing It’s Christmas Time, all the children singing It’s Christmas Time people all out shopping It’s Christmas Time, time to stuff those stockings (At Christmas Time we shine so bright) Just spread your love and sing through the night (At Christmas Time we shine so bright) Oooh it feels so right…. It’s Christmas Time, all the bells are ringing It’s Christmas Time, all the children singing It’s Christmas Time, people all out shopping It’s Christmas Time, time to stuff those stockings It’s Christmas Time, trimming the tree together It’s Christmas Time, enjoying the snowy weather Its Christmas Time, kissing under mistletoe And Celebrating with family and friends that you know
