Poppy Releases I Won’t Be Home For Christmas; Announces Upcoming Christmas EP
It’s been a busy year for Poppy, and the genre-busting star is keeping up that trend by rounding off 2020 with a Christmas EP (yes, really).
A Very Poppy Christmas is due out on December 1 via Sumerian Records, with new single I Won’t Be Home For Christmas available to hear now (check it out below). Elsewhere on the four-track release, we’ve also got the songs I Like Presents, Kiss In The Snow and Silver Bells to look forward to. Lovely.

As well as making this EP, Poppy told Vanity Fair recently that she’s used lockdown to dip her toes into new waters away from music. “Everything I have been telling myself I would like to learn these past few years, I’ve had a second to get into,” she said. “My boyfriend taught me how to ride a motorcycle, I started making clothes, I bought roller skates…” Whatever is going to come next?!
Anyway, check out the lullaby-esque I Won’t Be Home For Christmas below:
The A Very Poppy Christmas tracklist is as follows:
1. I Like Presents
2. I Won’t Be Home For Christmas
3. Kiss In The Snow
4. Silver Bells

Biffy Clyro’s new single A Hunger In Your Haunt is described by Simon Neil as “an expression of pure frustration” and “a self-motivating mantra”.
