'We Need A New New Year' is about using the Christmas spirit to make changes in 2022 (see lyrics below).

Proceeds from the sale of the song will go to Pauline Town and We Shall Overcome Ashton-under-Lyne, England, who are doing a sterling job of supporting homeless and other people needing a helping hand in the area this Christmas, and throughout the year.

'(We Need) A New New Year' features the marvellous Joshua Burnell on keys, Hugh Bradley on electric bass mandolin, and John Arnesen on drums.
