A Time To Buy

Album: In Winter (2016)
  • As a teenager, the Georgian-born Katie Melua moved to Redhill in England. According to a November 2016 article in Surrey Downs Magazine, this song "touches on the commercialism of Christmas in the West."
  • "A Time To Buy" includes backing vocals by the Gori Women's Choir and is about a young woman for whom Christmas shopping is a financial challenge, an experience the future Mrs. Toseland never had; her father is a heart surgeon, and according to the same article, by 2007 she was the biggest selling UK-based female artist in the world. By the time In Winter was released, she was said to have a net worth of £12 million. >>
