Slade / Merry Xmas Everybody

12-inch pressed on ‘snowflake’ marbled vinyl

BMG are releasing Slade’s Christmas classic ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ on limited edition coloured 12-inch vinyl next month.

The song was originally released way back in 1973 and was the band’s sixth number-one single in the UK (it sold over a million copies at the time). Of course, these days it regularly climbs the chart every Christmas thanks to streaming, but it’s still good to see a physical release!

‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ will be available on 12-inch white vinyl

The 12-inch single is pressed on ‘snowflake’ marbled white vinyl and includes three other festive/party tracks in: ‘Let’s Dance’, ‘Okey Cokey’ and ‘Auld Lang Syne’ / ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

Those songs were on 1985’s Crackers – The Christmas Party Album. This has now been rejigged (a “re-compilation”) to form Deluxe Crackers. Like the 12-inch it’s pressed on white vinyl (this time ‘transparent & smokey’ white vinyl). This contains 16-tracks but there’s a 20-track CD version as well.

Merry Xmas Everybody is released on 25 November 2022, via BMG. Crackers is out now.
