Tinsel and Lights, Tracey Thorn's follow-up to her acclaimed 2010 album Love and Its Opposite, features ten seasonal cover versions of songs by Dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell, Sufjan Stevens, Low and more, as well as two new original tracks and Tracey's vinyl-only rendition of "25th December", originally written and sung by Ben Watt on Everything But The Girl's 1994 album Amplified Heart. Tinsel and Lights was produced by Ewan Pearson and showcases Tracey's famously rich vocals and contributions on guitar and piano.

New York Magazine included Tinsel and Lights in its "Picks for Fall" saying –Tinsel and Lights is part Christmas album, part covers album, and bound to be good company when it gets colder," while The Guardian declares that the album "captures the emotions particular to the season and stands comparison with anything [Thorn]'s done."
