The press release announcing the song called the track "a unique take for this holiday season. Let’s just say that the pair get a little scrappy. It also features a piano. Yay."

“It may sound weird and come as a surprise to some, but we had to," the band said in a statement. "It came to us. It landed in our lap and was way too good to shake or toss. We knew we had to record it. A sign if you will.”

And of Lauper? "This goes to show even rat sideswipers can have a good Xmas too.” Something tells us this is gonna be good, folks.
