Tinsel and Lights is a Christmas album by British singer Tracey Thorn. It was released on 29 October 2012 on Buzzin' Fly Records. It is her fourth solo studio album. The album mostly avoids canonical Christmas songs but instead features covers of songs by Sufjan Stevens, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, Ron Sexsmith and The White Stripes as well as self-penned songs. Scritti Politti's Green Gartside features on a cover of Low's "Taking Down the Tree", as well as writing "Snow in Sun"

Tinsel and Lights Tracey Thorn. More By Tracey Thorn.

Written by Tracey Thorn, it forms part of a unique transatlantic 'double A-side' digital single

Tracey Thorn's fourth solo album arrives a few months before her autobiography, the splendidly titled Bedsit Disco Queen. In the event, all the factors that should count against Tinsel and Lights being a success actually work to its advantage. The quiet good taste is much in evidence: there's only one canonical Christmas favourite, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Elsewhere, she picks stuff from the oeuvres of Randy Newman and the White Stripes, the latter's In the Cold Cold Night rendered as a delicate shimmer.
