Future Islands add their signature spin on new cover of Wham!'s 'Last Christmas'

November 1 has (somehow) become the new first day of Christmas season.   The jack-o’-lanterns still haven't finished rotting on the stoop  - but peppermint spice lattes are out, they are selling christmas trees, and bands are releasing holiday songs.   This year ( to save you from tears) Future Islands have dropped a new cover of Wham!'s 1984 classic, “Last Christmas.”

 

Staying true to the original version for the most part, but it's vocalist Samuel T. Herring distinctive style that gives the cover it's flare.  Check out Future Island’s “Last Christmas” below and go ahead and check out of Whamageddon before December even starts !
