Word Entertainment’s Stars Go Dim heralds the forthcoming holiday season with a fresh take on “The First Noël,” bowing today (10/15). Bestowing a worshipful bent to the timeless classic, Stars Go Dim’s Chris Cleveland adds a soaring chorus he penned with Jeff Pardo, who also produced the track.
“‘The First Noël’ is a song, like I’m sure for a lot of you, that I’ve heard, sung and loved since I was a kid,” shares Cleveland, who uses Stars Go Dim as his stage moniker. “This Christmas, we wanted to take a song that reminds us of those simple and classic Christmases of our past and reconnect with the story of Christmas in that way. We added a beautiful and worshipful chorus that feels like it’s been part of the song forever. My prayer for you as you listen to this song is that it can bring us together, connecting us to the simple and peaceful tradition of the season, but that you will also be able to worship and sing along as we declare the truth about Jesus coming to Earth.”
“The First Noël” serves as the title-cut of Star Go Dim’s upcoming Christmas EP. The six-track collection, filled with both originals and standards, arrives Nov. 5
