Here it is – the first Christmas single from poptastic York duo Disco Mister.
Everybody Dance (Happy Christmas) doesn’t have snow and has only the subtlest ring of sleigh bells, but its joyful chorus will make it a floor filler at those festive parties.
It tops off quite a year for Disco Mister, aka Huntington School teachers Robin Parmiter and Ian Wilson. Their England footie anthem Bring It Home went viral and they performed at the Grand Départy during the Tour de France.
Could the Christmas single be even more popular?
“We want the video to go viral worldwide, and we’re eyeing up the UK Christmas No. 1 position for 2014,” Ian said.
Supporting a good cause
Like the summer song, Everybody Dance (Happy Christmas) will raise money for charity.
“We’ve teamed up with York based Webcertain to raise money for their charity, Build A School In Africa,” said Ian.
“All proceeds from the sales of the song will go to building and equipping a school in a deprived village in Western Kenya, supporting education for those who desperately want it.
“As teachers, we believe that every child deserves the right to an education and we hope to get York’s children and teenagers involved with this York based charity.”
What’s in the box?

The video was shot in various North Yorkshire locations, including Castle Howard, Scarborough and Pickering Station.
It tells the tale of a wise man (Ian) and a shepherd (Robin) guided to a Christmas tree by an angel. The angel gives them a gift. But, as the hashtag for the new song states, #WhatsInTheBox?
You can pre-order the song on iTunes and Amazon and other outlets before the song is released on December 15th, Christmas No. 1 week.
