My annual Xmas single is released and I’ve already gotten some great response to it. It’s funny though how my little pun with the cover and the title seemed to pass people by 🙂 The song is written in a manner that is called “canon” in musical terms. Wiki explains the canon like this: In music, a canon is a contrapuntal composition that employs a melody with one or more imitations of the melody played after a given duration (e.g., quarter rest, one measure, etc.).
But as it sounds just like cannon, I put a little cannon shooting snowflakes on the cover.
Here’s some links to the reviews that’s out so far:
Sofia returns to her Indie folk pop roots on a very pretty down-tempo number with beautiful imagery of the season. It’s entitled “Winter Canon”, which is a cute title but doesn’t really express how lovely the song actually is. About the only thing wrong with this single is that Sofia didn’t include her picture on the cover art.

She’s definitely one of the finest Swedish singer-songwriter, and there are doubtlessly many good ones. This year’s song is called Winter Canon and it matches the expectations easily. Her soft, bright voice makes this tune really special.

“Winter Canon” has a very old-fashioned American Christmas feel to it….I recommend giving it a listen, downloading it and going out of your way to do something for someone else.
