Release day is finally here! I’m happy to finally be bringing you all some chippy holiday cheer with the release of 8 Bit Trio‘s new EP, Christmas Chips Vol.2!
This year’s holiday EP includes four classic Christmas carols. A couple of my favorites, as well as one that I’d never really heard done before, all arranged as chiptune trios!
Christmas Chips Vol.2 Complete Track List:
1. Carol of the Bells
2. I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
3. I Saw Three Ships
4. Silent Night
The EP’s jacket art builds on last year’s release. I used the beautiful pastel gaming Santa picture by Narumi Abe as a base and reworked it as high resolution pixel art! Love the result and a big thank you to Narumi for letting me modify her original artwork. I think this might become a bit of a tradition…
The full EP is available on the 8 Bit Trio Bandcamp page now! So head on over and pick up your copy.
If you prefer to stream your Xmas music, then you’ll have to wait until the 12th to do so. But once it goes live you’ll be able to find your platform here.
A bit of a short blog entry today, but you’ll have to forgive me I’ve been busy getting the release all set up. I did want to take a moment to thank everyone who came to the pre-release listening party over on Twitch! It was fun to be there when the album was heard for the first time, definitely a new experience, but one that I’ll be doing for my releases from here on out.
I’ll be back next week with a regular blog, until then enjoy the new album!
Stay creative- E
