Speaking about the track, Creative Universe creative director Ant Llewellyn-Harris at We Create Popular says:

"We’ve been overwhelmed with the support from some of the UK’s biggest creators and production talent to create this single. It’s filled with joy, but at the heart of this is a team of over 50 people coming together to support one of the UK’s most in need charities.

"The soaring cost of living is driving record numbers of people on the lowest incomes to food banks. Food banks are already stretched to breaking point and urgently need donations to continue to be there for people who need them right now.

"If you can’t volunteer at your local food bank or make a food donation, but you can spare 99p, download I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Creator Universe from December 15."
