NEW ALBUM: MICHAEL BUBLÉ | CHRISTMAS (DELUXE 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
Michael Bublé has re-released his holiday album "Christmas" as it celebrates its 10th Anniversary with a deluxe edition. In addition to the original CD and exclusive green vinyl, the collection will include a 7-track bonus CD with two newly recorded songs: “The Christmas Sweater” and “Let It Snow,” as well as “Winter Wonderland,” a duet with Rod Stewart. Just months after the February 2003 debut of Michael Bublé's first studio album for Reprise Records, the Canadian crooner released an EP of Christmas music. "Let It Snow!" reinforced the young artist's connection to the great vocalists who had inspired him as it featured such classics as "White Christmas," "The Christmas Song," and the Jule Styne/Sammy Cahn-penned title track. Eight years later, Bublé finally released a full-length seasonal set. 2011's simply-entitled "Christmas," his fifth album for Reprise, shot to No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Boasting the familiar likes of "It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," and "A Holly Jolly Christmas," the album was his third chart-topper. It's gone on to become his most successful LP to date, with over 4 million copies sold in the U.S. and 12 million worldwide. It's also had four billion streams (calculated as equivalent to 60 million albums). The album also won a Juno Award for Album of the Year, making it the first-holiday album to win the award.
