According to the listing on Amazon, the song, from the CD "Holidays Rule" to be released by Hear Music, is performed with Diana Krall, who backed him on his “Kisses on the Bottom” album. McCartney's interpretation follows in the pattern of the album in which he performs with an intimate, quiet style like a radio singer alone in a studio.
McCartney is the biggest name on the advance listings from the album. Others include the Shins, who cover McCartney's “Wonderful Christmastime,” Rufus Wainwright, Y La Bamba, the Punch Brothers, The Head and the Heart, Irma Thomas, The Civil Wars, Black Prairie featuring Sallie Ford, Calexico, AgesandAges, Calexico, Holly Golightly, the Heartless Bastards and the Fruit Bats.
