Every year Sofia Talvik releases a free Christmas single as a holiday gift to her fans. Her Christmas songs always portray a darker side of Christmas, not the cheery jingle bells Christmas we hear on radio and in every store. The new single ”Christmas Train”, is a modern take on the Krampus story (Santa’s evil counterpart that punishes, rather than spreads joy and presents) in the form of a thundering train that will steal dreams, as well as lives away from everyone in its path. 

Sofia’s new album, Paws of a Bear, was released in September to critical acclaim, as well as many list placings on folk and Americana radio charts worldwide.
”Christmas Train” is a free standing single and not part of the new album. 

Please listen and enjoy!
