Tom Smith, the singer of the Editors, has welcomed the opportunity to try a far wider range of musical instruments while recording his Christmas album.

The indie-rock band frontman, who made his name with albums such as The Back Room, An End Has A Start and In This Light and on This Evening, has teamed up with Razorlight's former drummer Andy Burrows to produce new release Funny Looking Angels, BANG Showbiz has reported.

He welcomed the opportunity to use a wider range of musical instruments than the indie genre typically allows and to escape the confines that his main band requires.

Mr Smith told the magazine that the new record gave him the chance to play the acoustic guitar and to be able to use the flute.

Earlier this month, teen pop sensation Justin Bieber put his acoustic guitar up for auction in order to raise money for a Winnipeg food bank.
