Sir Christopher Lee, best know for his roles as Dracula, Francisco Scaramanga, and Saruman the White in the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit movies, has released a holiday single, just weeks before Christmas.
In what has become an annual tradition, the 92-year-old British Knight and distinguished metalhead has released the track, titled “Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing.”
The tune is a playful take on the old classic “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.”
“Jingle Hell,” Lee’s 2013 Christmas single, peaked at #18 on theBillboard charts. For that, Lee has the honor of being the oldest musician toever chart on Billboard.
The video below features a sample of the track, as well as a few ballads from previous years.
