Christmas is the perfect time for a good novelty record - and Shaun the Sheep creator Aardman Animations will be hoping the character's fans get behind his debut single.
Life's A Treat will be released by Gut Records on December 10th. Aardman has also created a video featuring Shaun and his farmyard friends Bitzer, The Naughty Pigs, The Flock, Timmy, Shirley and The Farmer.
The single will be available in two collectable formats, as well as via digital channels. The enhanced single (with poster) will include the Single Mix, Christmas Mix, Karaoke Mix (format exclusive) and a Whistling Mix. Within the enhanced section there will be a game, picture gallery, screen saver and wallpaper image.
Vic Reeves, who sing's the theme tune to Shaun the Sheep, apparently commented: "I wish Shaun all the best with his song and I think he has a very good chance of beating the X Factor winner."
