Like many others, Upon Wings is disheartened to see how the coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting so many good people around the world.
Some people are putting up Christmas lights to try to add some much-needed cheer to the world right now, and the Hallmark Channel is also running Christmas movies again.
Seeing this bit of Christmas cheer has inspired Upon Wings bring back our Christmas giveaway and give you a free Christmas song. Hopefully it will bring you a little bit of love during this difficult time.
Just fill out the form below and indicate which Christmas song you would like, and we’ll send it your way. The options are “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel / God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “O Holy Night,” which you can hear below. Listen to the song now to lift your spirits, or save it for the next holiday season.
Stay safe and healthy, my friends. <3

+”Upon Wings EP review in Metal Hammer: “Hypnotic gothic rock that flits between symphonic and operatic metal while showcasing Anne Autumn Erickson’s dramatic vocals. Less bombastic than Tarja and not quite as flowery as early Within Temptation, but with a charm that is all its own.”
Upon Wings, ‘Afterlife,’ the Final Song of the Decade Played on Europe’s Dark Metal Radio and American Ladies Metal Brunch
This is so cool! Thanks to Europe’s Dark Metal Radio and American Ladies Metal Brunch for spinning Upon Wings, “Afterlife,” right before midnight as the year 2020 began. It’s so neat to think that “Afterlife” was the final song of the decade played on the station. Thank you!
Thank you so much for your support over the years. As a Christmas gift to YOU, Upon Wings has recorded a NEW holiday song: an angelic version of “O Holy Night!” This is our second piece of Christmas music to date and follows 2018’s “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel / God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”
You can download “O Holy Night” for free through Christmas! It will also be available on Apple Music, iHeartRadio, Amazon Music, Spotify and all digital outlets soon.
To get the free song, just enter your email address below, and Upon Wings will send you the song!
The song features vocalist Anne Erickson, guitar work and production by Kevin Jardine (Uplift Productions) and mastering by five-time Grammy-nominated Glenn Brown (Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, Marcus Miller, Nazareth, Spinal Tap).
