Limahl wrote this festive single, ‘London for Christmas’, in collaboration with Jon Nickoll (jazz pianist of the iconic Savoy Hotel) and celebrated PWL producer, Ian Curnow. It is the heart-warming winter's tale of two lovers enraptured in the maelstrom of excitements in the countdown to Christmas - set against the backdrop of London.
'For many years I've relished the challenge of writing a brand new Christmas song but constantly put it off because I wasn’t sure it could be done; I thought that every Christmas lyric must surely have already been written! I'd also considered the same songwriting challenge with London as the subject - having lived here for over thirty years and still being incredibly passionate about it. Then it occurred to me to try and combine the two subjects - and in that moment, the idea was born! In the song, a couple in love reminisce about their previous Christmas trips to their favourite city and excitedly plan what they'll do when they return again this year. It is a true thrill for me to finally release a song which I’d contemplated writing for so long and with an end-result, of which I'm very proud'
