New England punk rock band FOUR YEAR STRONG is getting into the Christmas spirit by releasing a cover of "Somewhere In My Memory" from the 1990 classic holiday movie “Home Alone.”
Originally written and recorded by famed composer John Williams for the original motion picture soundtrack for "Home Alone", “Somewhere In My Memory” was nominated for Best Original Song by the Academy Awards after its release in 1990 and has since become a holiday classic.
“We've wanted to record a Christmas song for as long as I can remember,” says lead vocalist/guitarist Alan Day. “Dan and I finally decided to sit down and figure out a way to make it happen and we couldn't be happier about how it turned out. We wanted to do a song that hasn't been covered a million times, and “Home Alone” is one of the best movies ever made, so “Somewhere In My Memory” seemed like the perfect song. We hope our rendition gives everyone as much holiday cheer as we had while recording it. Merry Christmas!”
Four Year Strong is currently on tour in the U.S. with Good Charlotte, The Story So Far and Big Jesus in support of their latest, self-titled album. In early 2017 the band will head to Europe for their “Rise Or Die Trying 10th Anniversary Tour.”
