Gearing up for the holidays, THE PIANO GUYS today share the music video for their rendition of the Christmas classic “What Child Is This.” Embracing the spirit of the season, the group filmed the visual in “Little Jerusalem” in Goshen, Utah, performing outside under cover of night, yet sheltered in the warmth of the locale’s life-size replications of biblical Jerusalem – watch here. The track is available on THE PIANO GUYS’ 2017 holiday album, Christmas Together. To continue the holiday celebration and commemorate the group’s 10th anniversary, THE PIANO GUYS are set to appear on Good Morning America’s GMA3 and perform “What Child Is This” on December 22 at 1 pm ET on ABC.
Of the new video, THE PIANO GUYS say, “In our arrangement of “What Child is This” we wanted to depict some of the feelings that must have been present at the manger scene at the center of the Christmas so long ago — awe, wonder, consternation, all tempered and sweetened with hope. As people listen we want them to hear and feel the propitiousness and vulnerability of the birth of the Baby Jesus — a baby born in the humblest of circumstances, and yet born with the ability to overcome the world and make all things right — a story, perhaps, meant to comfort all who feel vulnerable and need hope in their own life. We were especially thrilled to be able to return to the same Jerusalem set where we filmed “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” hosted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is now the set of the series The Chosen, a show which we are honored and very excited to be able to promote.”
THE PIANO GUYS just released their tenth album, 10—available now from Sony Music Masterworks. The same day, a music video for the album’s latest single “Someone To You” arrived. The new album has resonated with audiences worldwide, racking up more than 60M audio and video streams to date globally. The group heralded 10 with a livestream party on release day, directly engaging and speaking with fans about their tenth anniversary and the record.
In the end, THE PIANO GUYS may be ten years older and wiser, but they cling to the same values and mission that brought them here ten years ago. “We hope 10 brings the spirit of joy and hope into the hearts of those who listen to it,” Steven leaves off. “We hope there is ten years’ worth of effort on our part injected to the point where it comes across authentically, and we hope, maybe, it does some good.”
