Queen has released a new animated video and an accompanying lyric video for their 1984 Christmas hit song, 'Thank God It's Christmas'.
Drummer Roger Taylor said, "Ironically, Christmas tends to be such a stressful time for so many of us. So many emotions, joyful memories of past Christmas' as delighted children and responsible adults/parents. It's just a great relief when it finally happens."
Guitarist Brian May adds that the video includes a subtle reminder that "we as humans now need to feel a responsibility for the welfare of all creatures on Earth – not just for our own benefit, and that of our grandchildren, but out of respect for the rights of the animals themselves"
Watch the two videos below.
Both members co-wrote the Christmas tune that spent over six weeks in the UK charts during the mid-80s.
