Mike Nesmith’s sons Christian and Jonathan have worked with their dad to create the new lead song and music video from The Monkees Christmas album ‘Christmas Party’.

‘The Christmas Song’ (sometimes referred to as ‘Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire’ or ‘Merry Christmas To You’) was written by Bob Wells and Mel Torme in 1945.

The Monkees video was produced, directed and animated by Mike’s son Jonathan Nesmith with Susan Holloway. Christian Nesmith produced the song. Mike sings lead vocal for The Monkees.

The Monkees The Christmas Song

Australia will get the chance to see Mike Nesmith with The Monkees for the first time since 1977. Mike documented the visit with the release of the live album ‘Live at the Palais’, released in 1978.

Mike later harpooned the album, recorded in Melbourne, in his Elephant Parts video.

The Monkees (minus Mike) performed at The Palais on their last Australia tour in 2016. The Monkees (with Mike) will also perform at the Palais on the 2019 Australian tour.
