"It’s got a country sound to it, not so much Presley but more the music so it’s a bit different. It’s like a country pop,” his proud dad James said.

"He’s feeling good now it’s been released. It’s been played on three radio stations so far, including BBC Radio Sheffield on the upload show which is great exposure for him and he’s planning to do a live YouTube concert on December 19 at 10pm because he’s got a lot of fans in America and Canada.

"He’ll be playing all his songs and it’ll have a real Christmas vibe.”

Wait for Christmas Day is available to download on all streaming services, such as Spotify and Apple Music.

It, along with Presley’s other songs, can also be viewed on his YouTube channel here.
