Lord Of The Rings star Christopher Lee has a new Christmas single, "Jingle Hell"

This past weekend, Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opened in theaters. Next week is Christmas. This breather seems like a perfect time for Christopher Lee, the 91-year-old actor best known for playing the velvet-voiced Saruman The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, to release his latest single, "Jingle Hell," a heavy-metal reworking of the classic American holiday song.

Lee is no stranger to the music scene, having already released two heavy-metal LPs about the life of Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne. "Jingle Hell" features Lee's rich, booming baritone set against a hard-driving guitar track and is available on iTunes. Lee recorded a promotional video for the single, below. It is, in his own words, a bit "naughty," so consider yourself warned.

The B-side to "Jingle Hell" is a cover of Frank Sinatra's "My Way."
