(hennemusic) Queen have released a new animated music video for their 1984 single, "Thank God It's Christmas." A rare songwriting collaboration between guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, the song spent six weeks in the UK charts over the Christmas/New Year period 1984/1985, and enjoyed a second run in Christmas 1995 when it was coupled with the hit single, "A Winter's Tale" from the "Made In Heaven" album.

Directed and animated by Justin Moon - alongside a companion lyric video version - the concept for the new animated editions came directly from the Queen duo.

"Ironically, Christmas tends to be such a stressful time for so many of us," says Taylor. "So many emotions, joyful memories of past Christmas' as delighted children and responsible adults / parents. It's just a great relief when it finally happens."

"The video goes a little further," adds May, "by including a subtle reminder that we as humans now need to feel a responsibility for the welfare of ALL creatures on Earth - not just for our own benefit, and that of our grandchildren, but out of respect for the rights of the animals themselves."
