Cliff Richard releases his renditon of Christmas classic 'Sleigh Ride'

Cliff Richard is set to release his first Christmas album in 20 years

 Cliff Richard has released a music video of his rendition of 'Sleigh Ride'.

This song will be released in his Christmas album 'Christmas With Cliff' along with other classic songs. 

As well as festive covers such as 'Joy To The World', 'Jingle Bell Rock' and 'Sleigh Ride', the 'Devil Woman' hitmaker has recorded brand new original tracks, also including 'First Christmas' and 'Six Days After Christmas (Happy New Year)'.

The 81-year-old music legend is set to release his Christmas album on November 25 and this will be his first Christmas album in 20 years.

The 'Summer Holiday' singer ironically recorded the festive songs in sunny Florida.

He said in a statement: "I have always loved being in recording studios ever since Studio 2, Abbey Road, in 1958.

"I recorded this album in Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida - 4,427 miles away from Abbey Road - and once again I felt that I was in a world of my own.

"I had the help of two producers, Sam Hollander and Chris Walden.

"They guided me through the 'well-known' Christmas songs and freed me to sing them my way.

"They had differing approaches to the songs that I asked them to produce for me, and they gave this album the dynamics that I had hoped for.

"This album is not just mine - it belongs to all of us involved in creating it, and I hope that we add a little something special to your Christmas season."

The 'Honky Tonk Angel' singer released 'Cliff at Christmas' in 2003 and 'Together With Cliff Richard' in 1991.

Cliff has had four UK Christmas No.1 singles, two as a solo artist with 'Mistletoe and Wine' and 'Saviour's Day'.
