Charity set to trooser Ken's cash.
The DJ, from Glasgow, who celebrated his 58th birthday this week, recorded the song in collaboration with Elvis impersonator Mitch Benn.
The pair got together to record the song made famous in the 1960s by kilted singer Andy Stewart.
The track is part of the Bandaged album, released before Christmas, featuring the vocal talents of radio presenters including Mark Radcliffe and Eamonn Holmes.
Little Drummer Boy, featuring Terry Wogan and Aled Jones, has already reached number three in the pre-Christmas charts.
Bruce said: "It was incredible fun recording this single for BBC Children In Need.
"I love any opportunity to celebrate my Scottish heritage so let's hope that, along with having a bit of fun, we can also raise a bit of money for the children and perhaps buy Pudsey a pair of troosers."
Every copy sold - with 30p from the 79p cost of the single benefiting the charity - will help Children In Need's total rise above the record-breaking pounds 20,991,216 reached at the end of the BBC1 Appeal Show last year.
While he's spun many a disc in his life, Ken's only personal foray into the charts was when he played the maracas on the 1981 single (Do) The Hucklebuck by Coast To Coast.
