In the face of yet another Halloween put a damper on by insane weather, relax and focus your attentions toward a hopefully mild holiday season with another new cut from the upcoming star-studded seasonal record Holidays Rule. This one is courtesy The Shins, who deliver a sunny, cheery, bubbly take on “Wonderful Christmastime” that’ll have you counting down the days.

Check it out – the rest of the record drops October 30.
