The “Christmas Nights” video was released just two days ago. The artist is Swedish first-league footballer Kevin Walker. Kevin won the Swedish version of the Pop Idol contest in 2013. He is of Irish decent but was born in Örebro, Sweden. Though Kevin has played for Sweden internationally in the U-19, he could also choose to play for Ireland.
Unfortunately we don’t know where exactly in Sweden the wintry rural scenes in the video were shot. Anyway, we think they are very beautiful (they start at 1:36).
