FOR PAT BENATAR AND NEIL GIRALDO, CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAYS IS A FAMILY AFFAIR
FEATURED IN THE MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE, “ONE DECEMBER NIGHT,” FROM UPCOMING NEIL GIRALDO’S 2016 HOLIDAY ALBUM, IS RELEASED DIGITALLY
(Los Angeles – December 4, 2015) “One December Night” by Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, is the first offering from Producer/Musician Neil Giraldo’s Holiday record due out later in 2016. The track is available now at digital outlets such as iTunes and Amazonmp3.
The album (whose title is yet to be named) will feature all original songs of various styles with special guest vocalists and guest players.
When asked about the project, Producer Neil Giraldo comments, “My intention was to write new songs that expressed the feelings and emotional components that embrace peoples’ lives during the holiday season. Hope, family, love….found and lost, new beginnings, coming home, et cetera.
One December Night was written by our youngest daughter Hana, Patricia, and myself and features Pat Benatar on vocals, as well as Hana Giraldo on background vocals. This is the first song we’ve composed and recorded as a family project.
For this recording, I wanted to capture the holiday charm of the 50’s and 60’s but with a modern, bluesy approach á la The Stroll.
The song has a roots based rhythm section, a bit of street corner Salvation Army percussion, slide guitar and piano. Add in Patricia’s powerful voice and a hint of “The Ronettes” and there you have it, One December Night!”
