Club Mickey Mouse — the digital revival of Disney’s classic Mickey Mouse Club program — today caps off its successful first season by releasing a Christmas special on Facebook. The Christmas special features a new original song by the Mouseketeers: “When December Comes.” Walt Disney Records also release the tune one day following, on Friday, Dec. 8. Also starting today, @ClubMickeyMouse will release videos and holiday content counting down to their Christmas Day performance on the “Disney Parks Magical Holiday Celebration” airing on ABC on Tuesday, Dec. 25.
“When December Comes” is Club Mickey Mouse’s new, original single, a candy cane-sweet pop song pulling inspiration from holiday classics with jazz untones of the era and remixed with flavors of today’s generation. Resident rockabilly crooner Sean Oliu kickstarts the medley on the electric guitar, while lyricist Regan Aliyah intercuts the upbeat second verse with a rap breakdown.
The song is written and performed by the eight Mouseketeers, who follow in the legendary footsteps of Club alumni Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears — and whom have become viral sensations in their own right (150 million views).
Club Mickey Mouse is an always-on, digital-first variety program from Oh My Disney that reboots the 90’s pop culture sensation, Mickey Mouse Club, for the digital age. As one of the first digital content programs created entirely for the social feeds and specifically for Facebook and Instagram, the program took fans behind the scenes into the creative process in making seven original songs and music videos.
Between backstage rehearsals and first-person social vlogs, the Mouseketeers made their worldwide debut with a reimagined version of the 1955 theme song, “Mickey Mouse Club March,” with help from mentor and influencer Todrick Hall. Since debuting in Sept., Club Mickey Mouse has also reached more than 150 million digital impressions with their viral original songs and choreography.
Fans can relive the first season on @ClubMickeyMouse Facebook and Instagram accounts.
