Tia Kofi has released a stunning acoustic cover of Mud’s chart-topping holiday classic ‘Lonely This Christmas’.

Boasting a simple piano, guitar and strings, the Drag Race UK alum’s vocals and harmonies soar in a much-needed modern (and queerified) version of the Christmas staple.

“Christmas should be a time for people to feel supported and love, but sadly that isn’t the case for everybody,” Tia tells GAY TIMES. “This song has always made me think deeply about others and how fortunate I am to have my family around me. It’s good to reflect and think about others during the holiday season.”

Tia has cemented herself as one of the series’ most acclaimed singer-songwriters since she finished in seventh place on Drag Race UK season two.

According to reports, she’s surpassed over three million streams on Spotify with bangers such as her debut single ‘Outside In’, ‘Loving Me Like That’, ‘Look What You’ve Done’ and ‘Maybe It’s You’.

The star previously dabbled in the Christmas genre with a cover of Britney Spears’ festive extravaganza ‘My Only Wish (This Year)’. Tia collaborated on the track with Priyanka, who memorably conquered the first season of Canada’s Drag Race. 

Since catapulting to fame on the aforementioned BBC series, Tia has performed as events such as Poptasia, Mighty Hoopla, Essex Pride and Bristol Pride. This year, she was the BBC’s digital presenter for the Eurovision Song Contest, starred in a BBC One primetime Eurovision special and presented the channel’s warm-up show on the night of the final.

‘Lonely This Christmas’ is out now on all streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music. You can watch the lyric video here or below.
