Watch Eric Clapton’s Claymation Video For White Christmas

Eric Clapton has shared a video for his version of “White Christmas.” The song comes off his recently-released holiday album, Happy Xmas.

Slowhand is celebrating with a new claymation-style video for his fiery blues take on the beloved song.

The video tells the story of a young blues fan (who looks a lot like Clapton) going to see a blues performer and dreaming of getting a guitar for Christmas. The story is not far from the truth for Clapton, even at age 73: 

“Almost every Christmas, my wife Melia gives me a guitar,” he recently said on Sirius XM. “Sometimes I’ve just hinted at it — if you want to know what I want for Christmas…”

Eric Clapton’s First Christmas Album ‘Happy Xmas’ Due On October 12, 2018

Eric Clapton has announced his first Christmas album Happy Xmas, a collection of seasonal songs that arrives this October.

“I had in my head that these holiday songs could be done with a slight blues tinge, and I started to figure out how to play the blues lines in between the vocals,” Clapton shared. “I got it down and one of the most identifiable songs on the album, the one that became the foundational style, is ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.’”

The 14-track album boasts popular seasonal favorites like “White Christmas” and “Silent Night” alongside lesser-known Christmas songs and one Clapton-penned original, “For Love on Christmas Day.” Clapton’s rendition of the standard “Jingle Bells” also carries the parenthetical “In Memory of Avicii.”

Clapton co-produced Happy Xmas alongside Simon Climie, with the guitarist also contributing the hand-drawn album cover featuring Clapton dressed as Santa Claus.

Happy Xmas, due out October 12th.
