Today, Macklemore releases his first-ever holiday song, an original entitled “It’s Christmas Time.” The song features UK soul singer Dan Caplen doing his best Bing Crosby-worthy croon, as well as Macklemore’s eldest daughter Sloane. “It’s Christmas Time” is co-produced by Tyler Dopps and Josh “Budo” Karp. Macklemore will perform the song on Ellen Wednesday, December 18.
Macklemore says of the song,
“Every year around Christmas time I think to myself ‘Just do it Ben. Make the song. You can be the new Mariah Carey’. Well, this year I finally am.”
