Since Christmas is a grand total of 35 days away, it’s pretty much expected that pop music’s finest will decide to chuck out some yuletide one-offs around this time of the year. One of the first to emerge comes in the form of 2015’s pop-darling Carly Rae Jepsen and a saxophone-smeared Last Christmas rendition.

Teasing the announcement via Instagram and a selection of xmas emoji’s, Jepsen’s take on WHAM!’s fairly familiar Last Christmas is exactly how you’d expect a Jepsen Christmas jingle to sound, flipping the original ballad into a jolly, upbeat affair.

It’s accompanied with some rather un-festive artwork, a giant neon tree and star against a bubble-gum pink backdrop, which means there should be no shame in succumbing to a listen during the other 11 months of the year.

Last Christmas is available to stream and download as of today (20/11/15).
