If you're more inclined toward the meditative than the jingle-all-the-way this season, "It's Christmas" by Kentucky-based singer/songwriter Daniel Martin Moore will fill that need. Moore's new original song, equal parts haunting and hopeful, follows his recently-released studio album "Golden Age," which was co-produced by fellow Kentuckian Jim James (My Morning Jacket), for which Martin is currently touring.

Here's the lyric video for "It's Christmas," which is available now for digital download through Sofaburn Records and on iTunes:
