“The bluesy guitar on the Elvis original immediately brought Ronnie to mind,” the Irish singer-songwriter said in a news release. “I thought, maybe he’ll sing with me too. I gave him all the outs: I’ll understand, not to worry, we can still be friends and he just said, ‘yeah’ with so much enthusiasm. Now, it’s not just him and his guitar that I love: His singing is so good on this record.”
“As soon as Andrea asked and I listened to her voice on ‘Blue Christmas,’ I knew I wanted in,” Wood said. “I didn’t even have to think about it. We had great fun doing it.”
Wood’s most recent solo release, September’s Mr. Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall, featured former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor. Over the summer, Wood also revealed that he and ex-Faces members Rod Stewart and Kenney Jones had been working on new music, though no further details have followed.
“I’ve had a front-row seat on some amazing rock ‘n’ roll projects,” Wood told The Times last summer. “I’m making every day count. Not wasting a moment.”
