Titled Creep But It's All I Want For Christmas Is You By Mariah Carey, William Maranci has taken Thom Yorke's 1992 ode to not feeling good about yourself with the pop icon's 1994 festive favourite.

Pour yourself a mulled wine and get listening.

Maranci admits that he was partially inspired by a solo ukulele cover by Zach Sanders from back in 2015.
