December will be a busy month for rockers Collective Soul. With their hit song “Shine” featured on Paper Jamz (a top-selling holiday gift this season) and a re-recording and new video for their smash song “Tremble For My Beloved,” the Atlanta based group is kicking off the holiday season with a bang.

Paper Jamz (distributed by Wow Wee USA) has chosen the Collective Soul classic “Shine” to be featured on their Style 8, Series II guitar which features 4 modes of interactive jamming.  Everyone can be a rock star while using Perfect Play, Rhythm Control, Freestyle and Karaoke modes when buying this popular gift for the 2010 holiday season.

Additionally, Collective Soul have re-recorded a new version of their hit song “Tremble For My Beloved” and shot a new music video which will premiere on Yahoo Music on December 3rd.  Both the song and video will be included in the upcoming Twilight compilation set for release on December 4th by Summit Entertainment. The compilation entitled Music Videos And Performances From The Twilight Saga Soundtrack Volume 1 will be released in Blu-Ray Disc, DVD and Digital Download Format and will also include other songs previously featured on the Twilight Saga Soundtracks.

Collective Soul’s own  El Music Group will release the “Tremble” video and re-recorded single exclusively with iTunes on December 7th, making it another perfect “December” for the Atlanta rockers.
