Lindsey Stirling, Sia, Hanson, Fantasia: New Holiday Music
Can you believe it? Christmas is just 76 days away. Even though we're just weeks away from Halloween, it's never too early to prepare the shopping lists, get excited for Eggnog Lattes and grab tickets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Speaking of the holidays, a variety of artists will be releasing new holiday-themed albums to pepper in alongside those tried-and-true holiday music classics. Multitalented violinist Lindsey Stirling will drop Warmer In The Winter on Oct. 20, pairing holiday favorites with original songs and collaborations with the likes Trombone Shorty and All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth.
Veteran rockers Cheap Trick will rock it up with Christmas Christmas on Oct. 20, an LP featuring holiday covers of songs by the Ramones and Chuck Berry and three original songs.
The brothers Hanson will release their first holiday LP in 20 years, Snowed In, on Oct. 27. 98 Degrees will bring holiday cheer with Let It Snow on Oct. 20. Meanwhile, GRAMMY winner Sia has teamed with collaborator Greg Kurstin for an as-yet-untitled holiday collection, due in the fourth quarter.
This round of new releases follows a handful of albums already released in time for the holidays: Fantasia, Christmas After Midnight, Elvis Presley and Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's You Make It Feel Like Christmas.
