Early Christmas Present

Album: My Best Friend is You (2010)


  • This song came out of a conversation Nash had with her boyfriend, The Cribs singer Ryan Jarman. She explained to Spinner UK: "Early Christmas Present, is about someone I know being cheated on. I was talking with Ryan about this guy I knew that had cheated on his girlfriend, and it dawned on us that it was pretty messed up for us to know about it but for her not to. The song's about how it's always the person who should know first that finds out last."
  • Nash explained to The NME that it was titled "Early Christmas Present," "because he slept around and ended up giving the girl something like an STD."
