The Growlers have shared their cover of "Lonely This Christmas" which was recorded durning their 2016 three night holiday run at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.

"Lonely This Christmas" was originally written and recored by the English band Mud. It was a Christmas Number One for Mud in 1974.

Performed in the style of Elvis Presley's slower songs from his later career though, despite several incorrectly-labelled videos on YouTube, Elvis Presley never recorded the song.

"I came to find out that this song wasn't actually sung by Elvis. So I'm impersonating an impersonator. I wonder if The King would have had a laugh about that?" said singer Brooks Nielsen.
