The hard-working, road-wise Capitol Records band, Royal Bliss, is ringing in the holiday season with a new Christmas single, I Just Want You (For Christmas). After spending the year criss-crossing the country on tour to support their album Life in Between, the guys from Bliss have posted their new single on their Royal Bliss MySpace site. Fans of the band won't be disappointed with the straight ahead rock radio tune that is only slightly naughty (but Santa can rest assured that it's far nicer than the recent scandalous appearances by artists on the Amercian Music Awards).
Released as a joint release with Capitol and MRV Records, the single is available for purchase for $1.98 at Amazon.com, iTunes, and other online outlets and comes bundled with a fan favorite song not previously released by the band entitled, Music Man (the tracks are also sold separately). The release of the single is but one digital stocking stuffer from the band who also releaased a special acoustic EP this month that was recorded at Capitol Records historic Studio A in Hollywood, CA (where previous top-name artists including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, The Beach Boys, and Green Day have recorded). Included on the EP are acoustic versions of some of the bands songs from Life In Between as well as a cover of the Johnny Cash classic Folsom Prison.
