Dee Snider enlisted the help of Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale on a new rendition of “The Magic of Christmas Day.”
Embedded below, Snider wrote the holiday tune which was famously recorded by Celine Dion for her 1998 holiday album These Are Special Times.
Hale told us of working with Snider on the track, “I loved Twisted Sister growing up, and I’ve had the privilege to know Dee for the better part of six years or so now. I love that he puts equal parts attitude and smile into whatever he does.”
As for lending her powerful vocals to the track, Hale said, “I always give the producers I’ve worked with more than they need. I track my own vocals and just as a rule, I like to find ways to use my entire range during the projects I take on. So there’s always some crazy note, or just something that maybe the artist or producer I’m working with isn’t expecting. After I recorded my parts and sent them in, I woke up to an email from Dee saying ‘F@&k You.’ He then explained that it was the highest compliment he could give…and that he was going to go back into the studio to re-record some of his parts because I was ‘playing dirty.'”
Hale continued, “So we had some friendly sparring back and forth. This project is something I didn’t know I needed to have on my bucket list…What a trip! It is an honor to have been asked to do it. And I cannot wait for the world to hear it!”
“The Magic of Christmas Day” is available on all major digital platforms now.
