The turkeys have been eaten, the pumpkins have (finally) been thrown away, and now it’s perfectly acceptable to start openly singing those Christmas tunes! We all love traditional Christmas songs but every year we also look forward to some new jingles. Here are 3 NEW albums that will get you in the holiday spirit -- and might actually yields some new perennial standards!
1. Glow -- Brett Eldredge
If you like Michael Bublé and Frank Sinatra, then this will be right up your alley. Brett Eldredge’s new album, Glow, will definitely get you feeling that classic holiday vibe, featuring covers of standards like “Let it Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” and “Baby It Cold Outside” featuring Meghan Trainor. Meghan’s soft voice and Brett’s deep vocals really take you back in time. The album reminds you why classic big bands are a must for the holidays.
2. A Pentatonix Christmas -- Pentatonix
Our favorite a capella group has MORE holiday tracks for you! Pentatonix first released a Christmas album in 2014 entitled That’s Christmas To Me, and now they are back with A Pentatonix Christmas full of classic songs as well as originals. A personal favorite is their version of “Hallelujah”. The group does a great job of capturing why Leonard Cohen made it such a classic. Be sure to check out their original tracks “Christmas Sing-Along” and “Good To Be Bad” as well. They also covered *NSYNC’s “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” and all is right in the world.
3. AVery Kacey Christmas – Kacey Musgraves
Here’s the perfect combination of Country and Christmas. Kacey Musgraves just released her album A Very Kacey Christmas featuring Willie Nelson, Leon Bridges, and The Quebe Sisters, making this the perfect album to listen to with a good cup of hot chocolate while singing along to “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. Trust us, you’ll feel like a kid again.
