Recorded at his home in Sussex, the 20-track album includes some rock, pop, blues and traditional Christmas songs all wrapped up for the festivities. Favourites such as White Christmas, The Christmas Song and the title track Silent Night are all included in this 60-minute release.

Professor Clark, a member of the School of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine & Sciences, enlisted the help of colleagues to perform one of the songs on the album (Rockin’ around the Christmas tree) with a guest cameo from King’s’ Vice-Chancellor & President, Professor Shitij Kapur.

Last year Professor Clark raised over £2,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, a charity close to his heart following the diagnosis of his father three years ago. This year he’s looking to raise even more.

Prostate cancer continues to kill men every year. This is such an important issue, I want to do everything I can to support the hard work and valuable research scientists are conducting to combat this cancer and spread some Christmas cheer at the same time. I’m proud to release this album and hope people will enjoy listening to some free Christmas tunes while donating to a good cause.”

The album is available to stream for free from SoundCloud and listeners who have enjoyed the music are encouraged to visit the Just Giving page to donate to the cause.

1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer. If you’re over 50, or you’re black, or your dad or brother had it, you’re at even higher risk. Prostate cancer is not always life-threatening. But when it is, the earlier you catch it the more likely it is to be cured.
