Tracey Thorn, who you perhaps know from this song, will be releasing a Christmas album this October. Among the many songs she will be covering is Stephin Merritt's "Like A Snowman," originally penned for Kiki & Herb's Christmas show. Additional details can be found here. I, for one, am very excited that this wonderful song will be heard by a wider audience than ever before, as it's always been amongst my favorite of Mr. Merritt's songs.
