Baby It's Cold Outside

Earlier this month, I worked on a duet with Catherine Taddo. It's a cover of Frank Loesser's Baby, It's Cold Outside. The piano is played by our good friend David Lynch and the vocals are sung by Catherine and myself (Olaf).

The song is available on this year's Vile Christmas album. Catherine took the time to create a video for the song, which I've included below. We've never recorded anything in this genre before. What do you think?
