Coinneach MacLeod, the Hebridean Baker, has hit the recording studio to create a Gaelic rendition of Auld Lang Syne for the festive season.

Teaming up with his partner Peter MacQueen, with whom he dueted at the Royal National Mòd, the pair are releasing Air Sgàth nan Iomadh Linn under the name Hogmanay Boys.  

Assisting on the record is Sileas Sinclair, who has composed the arrangement, and producer Brian McAlpine from Session A9. The backing singers are Claire MacLeod, Kirsty MacInnes, Jodie Beaton and Anna MacGregor.

Released on December 1, the track will receive its first air play this afternoon (Tuesday November 28) on Radio nan Gàidheal. A documentary about the making of the track will be shown on BBC Alba on Christmas Day.

Speaking about the single, baker and author Coinneach said: "Collaborating with Peter and this incredible team has been a dream come true. I'm proud to be sharing a song in Gaelic with the world."
