The Veronicas Wish You A Merry Christmas With A New Song

The Veronicas are sharing the joy of the season (and showing their marketing savvy) by posting new music on the wide open, news-free day that is Christmas. Aussie twins Lisa and Jess Origliasso, who also turn 25 today, share the beautifully melodic acoustic track “Could’ve Been” from their upcoming third studio album. What, you were hoping for sugar plums?

Lisa and Jess – who look so alike now they can barely tell each other apart – first wish a happy holidays to all their fans with this special holiday message, along with a preview of their upcoming album, which they’re in the process of writing. The twins revealed in a note accompanying the vid that they plan to begin recording in January.

The Veronicas – “Could’ve Been”

Although we’re bigger fans of The Veronicas’ more pumped up, powerhouse pop songs like “Forever” and “Take Me On The Floor,” this simple ballad sounds promising, and the harmonies are enchanting. Plus, watching this video of Jess play guitar while the two of them belt it out with nary a backing track is a reminder that not all pop stars depend on studio magic to put the spark in their performances. No wonder Jess and Lisa’s home country frowns on lip synching.
