The Offspring has released a cover of the holiday classic “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” originally recorded by Darlene Love.
“It just seemed like the world could use a nice holiday song right now,” says frontman Dexter Holland. “We’ve always been huge fans of Darlene Love, so when the idea came up to do a Christmas song, we jumped at the chance to record that one…and tried not to wreck it!”
You can grab The Offspring’s version of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” now via digital outlets. It’ll also be released as a special “holiday red” vinyl single.
Meanwhile, The Offspring is readying a 20th anniversary reissue of the band’s 2000 album, Conspiracy of One, which will be released December 11. Additionally, the SoCal punks have been working on a new album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By.
