December 14 2011

Holiday release setting sales records

Wednesday, December 14, 2011 - For immediate release

Michael Bublé has gotten music fans the holiday spirit early this year with the release of his new album Christmas. The album has already sold more than 5 million copies around the world since its mid-October release including nearly 350,000 copies in Canada, easily making it the biggest album of the holiday season.

This weekâs Canadian sales tally, 92,444, makes it the biggest one week sales total for any album so far in 2011, surpassing the 81,000 copies sold of Lady GaGaâs âBorn This Wayâ in the last week of May. It is the biggest one week sales total for any album since AC/DCâs Black Ice sold 119,000 copies in October 2008 and the biggest one week sales total for a Canadian artist since Gregory Charlesâ I Think Of You sold 93,000 copies in October 2006. Bubleâs Christmas has now sold 344,000 copies in its seven weeks of release, placing it at #2 on the top sellers list so far in 2011.

Christmas includes such classics as âWhite Christmasâ with a guest appearance by fellow Canadian Shania Twain, âJingle Bellsâ (with the Puppini Sisters), âHave Yourself A Merry Little Christmasâ, and âSanta Claus Is Coming To Townâ. In addition, Latin singing sensation Thalia joins Bublé on âFeliz Navidadâ. Led by Michaelâs original composition âCold December Nightâ â already a Top 5 hit - no less than eight of the albumâs fifteen songs are charting at Canadian radio

Over the next week, Michael will be making a number of television appearances including co-hosting Live with Regis & Kelly on December 16, performing on Saturday Night Live December 17 and an encore presentation of Michaelâs own highly rated Christmas Special on CTV on Sunday, December 18, 2012.

Christmas was produced by David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica and was recorded in LA and Vancouver and follows up his multi-platinum âCrazy Loveâ CD which sold over seven
million copies.
