The former Razorlight drummer received the call to congratulate him his own compositions and to enquire if he"d be up for working on the musical side of the new production.
"It was a total dream to get something like that. The Snowman is part of our culture. I grew up with it. Plus I love Christmas, just everything about this time of year, it's so magical."
Following his five year drum tenure with Razorlight, Burrows went on to guest with We Are Scientists, before releasing his second solo album, Company, in autumn of last year.
He"d already showed his song-writing prowess by providing the hits, America and Before I Fall to Pieces, and having been a key figure in shaping the Razorlight sound, as well as putting out his debut long player, The Colour of My Dreams.
Burrows had said in the past that his five years in Razorlight had been "an amazing experience," and that he"d left the band "for personal reasons" and that decided to "pursue other musical ventures."
His former forntman, Johnny Borrell, said he would "miss" the drummer, and that. "over the last two albums and five years Andy has been an integral part of Razorlight and we will miss him.
"From the day he walked into our rehearsal studio it was obvious that he was an amazing drummer and he"s contributed on many levels beyond that.
"He's been a great player and a great friend and I think we'll both always be proud of the music we've made together."
