David Attenborough is releasing a single and going for Christmas number 1

Course he is.

David Attenborough's been everywhere recently.

He's been on Christmas jumpers. He's been saving baby penguins on his documentary despite the crew never intervening before. He's been dropping docs onto Netflix like there's no tomorrow. 

Banging them all out.

And it turns out that there's no stopping Attenborough this festive season either because he's releasing a new single and he's gunning for it to be Christmas number one.

No, we're not bullshitting you.

Way back in the 50s and 60s at the start of his career, David made some field recordings while travelling around South America.

These recordings included indigenous musicians in Paraguay with Attenborough speaking over them - and it's that track that Big DA and his team are apparently pushing to get to Christmas number one.

Might as well, like.

The Sun reports that David's My Field Recordings from Across the Planet will be released on Friday - and then the campaign to get his first song off the album to number one will begin.

And to be honest, yeah, we'd be well able to get behind this.

Anything's better than another X Factor winner.
