“Working with the team creating this song has been amazing, it’s about appreciating each other and thinking of others at Christmas and having a beautiful day together and creating memories of a lifetime,” said Kerry.
ONE BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS DAY was written by Kerry and her writing team including Brian prior to lockdown and everyone knew that it’s positive message meant that this was the year that it had to be released.
Brian said, “The time is right for a new Christmas Classic - and this is it!! One Beautiful Christmas wish for togetherness at the end of a tough year.“

... just in time for enjoying 3-D ADVENTURES THIS CHRISTMAS ! Brian May, founder of the 21st Century incarnation of the London Stereoscopic Company (LSC), continues to create 3-D wonders from lockdown. Today, the LSC adds a Steampunk-inspired new dimension to its line of definitive high-quality modern-day 3-D stereoscopic viewers, delivered in a retro bronze flourish. Echoing Victorian and Steampunk styles, for the launch of this new viewing instrument, Brian dons Steampunk attire, in a photo session in which he holds the first Steampunk OWL off the production line. In the first ‘teased’ picture, released last week, the new OWL is visible, but only just enough to spark an excited discussion on social media.
The second picture, released on Tuesday, reveals a close-up of Brian in period half-mask holding the new SteamPunk stereoscope, which is now seen in detail. And in this exclusive stereoscopic video, Brian reveals the story behind the product.
May has until now kept very quiet about this new viewer, which has been in development for nearly a year. It was designed to fulfil a perceived need for a quality viewing device for side-by side stereo pictures compact and light enough to be always carried around in a pocket or worn around the neck with a cord. The existing LITE OWL was designed for viewing stereos in books, and has also been used as a travel stereoscope, but its one-piece construction in Acrylic material made it too brittle to survive in some trouser pockets ! This new device is rugged, moulded in metallic-effect Polypropylene with acrylic lens inserts. Geometrically it is closer to the classic OWL design, with a slightly longer focal length than the LITE OWL, making 3-D viewing for many people just a little easier.
Why SteamPunk ?
Brian's London Stereoscopic Company currently presents stereoscopic images (as stereo cards and illustrations in books) using the highest resolution printing technology available today, and viewed through this new device, these visuals are guaranteed to spring to life in glorious 3-D, just as in Victorian times. The Steampunk OWL can also be used to view 3-D videos and VR content on any smartphone.
The LSC's mission is to inspire a new generation to embrace stereoscopy, by sharing the world’s greatest 3-D images - from Victorian times to the present day. The cutting-edge Steampunk OWL will be a welcome addition to the line. Add pictures of the SP cardboard package.
