Michael Buble Announces Christmas September 07 2011
For immediate release
Michael Buble has a special holiday gift for his naughty and nice fans this year. On October 24th, the multi Grammy Award winning Canadian will be releasing his new album called CHRISTMAS, confirmed today by his label 143/Reprise Records. CHRISTMAS follows the Grammy and Juno Award winning artist's previous album "Crazy Love" which sold over seven million copies worldwide and was certified multi-platinum in the US, UK, Australia and Canada.
Commented Buble, "Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year for me and my family so naturally it's been a dream of mine to make the 'ultimate' Christmas record. Even though it was summer and 95 degrees in LA, we totally got into the spirit of the holiday. Of course we decorated the studio with Christmas lights in the middle of July and that was a big help. One more thing, my mother told me it's the best record I ever made."
CHRISTMAS, produced by David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica, was recorded primarily at Capitol Recording Studios in Hollywood and The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver. The album includes guest performances by Shania Twain on "White Christmas" and The Puppini Sisters on "Jingle Bells." Buble also put his unique take on such classics as "Silent Night," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town." In addition, a Buble original "Cold December Night" will be included on CHRISTMAS.
In conjunction with the release of CHRISTMAS, Buble will star in an NBC Holiday Special and is also scheduled to appear on 60 Minutes, the NBC Christmas Tree Lighting (November 30th) and Saturday Night Live (December 17th).
Buble has just completed his sold out "Crazy Love" Tour which played in 80 North American cities and was seen by over one million people.
