Queen Releases New Video For Their Christmas Classic

Queen has just posted two new video clips for the band's 1984 yuletide classic, "Thank God It's Christmas." According to the press release, "Working with Brian May and Roger Taylor, the film was directed & animated on their behalf by Justin Moon and executive produced by Drew Gleason for production company 1824."

The new clip is available in two versions -- one as a straight animated clip, with the second serving as a lyric video for the song.

"Thank God It's Christmas" was written by May and Taylor, and originally issued by the band back in November 1984 as a single-only release. The Christmas track spent six weeks in the UK charts over the holiday season and topped out at Number 21.

Roger Taylor said in a statement:"Ironically, Christmas tends to be such a stressful time for so many of us. So many emotions, joyful memories of past Christmas’ as delighted children and responsible adults/parents. It's just a great relief when it finally happens."

Brian May added:"The video goes a little further by including a subtle reminder that we as humans now need to feel a responsibility for the welfare of ALL creatures on Earth -- not just for our own benefit, and that of our grandchildren, but out of respect for the rights of the animals themselves."
