I don't see a CD pre-order for some reason, just the digital and vinyl

Can't afford the vinyl boxset. Would love a CD boxset though to go with his first "Songs For Christmas"

it's not the more subdued stuff from the first two christmas discs, but it's not 'adz-y' either. the song he's previewing is basically a more full, lush jupiter winter from disc 5.

i'm loving the addition of parts of "love will tear us apart" to "christmas unicorn."
