Every week NPR music writer and editor Stephen Thompson brings us a new song to brighten up our week.

This week, it's something seasonal: Nick Lowe's "Christmas at the Airport" from his new (and first) holiday album, "Quality Street."

"What I love about 'Christmas at the Airport,' --besides how relatable it is, is the tone of it — instead of making a brooding dirge about missing family, he gives the song a chipper quality," Thompson tells Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti.
