Straight No Chaser & Kristen Bell Team Up For A New Holiday Classic
By RR

Our favorite a cappella crooners, Straight No Chaser are back with their new, instant holiday classic "Text Me Merry Christmas" featuring Kristen Bell!

Kristen Bell spoke on her experience recording with Straight No Chaser, “'Text Me Merry Christmas' was so much fun to record. The lyrics are smart and creative, and musically it was a blast to sing a cappella with Straight No Chaser. I’m excited to be a part of what could be a Christmas classic for our current generation.”

"I’m excited to be a part of what could be a Christmas classic for our current generation.” - Kristen Bell

“We wanted a Christmas song that spoke to how informal communication has become,” said SNC member Randy Stine. “As soon as we heard the first demo it was apparent that it had to be a duet… the only voice we heard singing this was Kristen Bell, and she nailed every note and delivered the lyrics with the perfect comedic tone. We were hanging on her every word… when we weren’t looking at our phones.”

Written by Emmy and Grammy Award winning writers David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger, “Text Me Merry Christmas” has been called “a modern-day classic” by Mashable, with Buzzfeed referring to the song as being “filled with millennial slang… that will fill you with merriment and joy.” The Hollywood Reporter said of the track, “Move over ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’, there’s a new holiday duet in town…” Check out the lyric video for "Text Me Merry Chrismas"!
