Paul McCartney is getting fans in the spirit with a new rendition of his holiday classic, “Wonderful Christmastime.”

This version features popular a cappella group Straight No Chaser filling in for all the instruments in Sir Paul’s backup band. (Listen below via Rolling Stone.)

Straight No Chaser pump things up with layers of vocals and let McCartney do his thing. He sounds nearly the same as he did on the 1979 original.

Paul McCartney just released his latest album, New, this week.
