    Tony Bennett and Diana Krall have put a jazzy spin on the heartwarming Christmas favorite, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”

    The duo, who recently worked on their joint George and Ira Gershwin tribute album, exhibit their wonderful chemistry on the holiday classic, against a backdrop of warm keys and double bass. There have been numerous versions of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” over the years, but nothing brings out the fuzzy feelings like Bennett and Krall’s dazzling cover (sorry, Michael Bublé).

    The song was released as part of Spotify’s annual Spotify Singles: Christmas Collection playlist, which features festive remakes from artists such as John Legend, Anderson .Paak, George Ezra and more.
