DAVID FOSTER AND KATHARINE MCPHEE SET TO RELEASE CHRISTMAS ALBUM THIS SEASON
CHRISTMAS SONGS NOVEMBER 25 ON LOMA VISTA RECORDINGS
FIRST SINGLE JINGLE BELL ROCK OUT TODAY
TORONTO, ON – October 28, 2022 – David Foster and Katharine McPhee have not recorded together in 17 years. What better excuse to get back into the studio than Christmas. The two will release their first Christmas album together this holiday season. Titled simply, Christmas Songs, the album will unwrap digitally on November 25 (physical out December 2). The lead single, Jingle Bell Rock, is out today – listen here.
The 16-time legendary GRAMMY winning producer has produced some of the greatest Christmas music of all time with artists such as Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Rod Stewart and Mary J Blige. It’s only fitting he now produces one with his wife, one of the greatest vocalists of today.
Says Foster about the recording, “We haven’t recorded together in 17 years so we thought it might be time to do it again! Kat has the most beautiful voice and she doesn’t know how to deliver less than a perfect vocal every time! When you make Christmas music, you literally get a free pass to do whatever you like-the freedom for me as a producer was so much fun – no pressure.”
Chimes in McPhee, “I haven’t been focusing on being a recording artist, but then I married the best record producer and the deal was sealed! We started this process out in our living room for fun and then it turned into a full-fledged, ‘let’s do this for real.’ David’s history with Christmas albums is legendary – it became a labour of love for him.”
Look for Foster and McPhee on TV this holiday season in support of their new Christmas album, starting with their recent interviews on Entertainment Tonight and People Online. They will perform on the Today show on December 2 with more appearances to be announced soon.
The Fosters also plan a small six city east coast tour and will incorporate the new songs into the show. The tour starts December 1 in Stonybrook, NY and ends in Medford, MA on December 8. They will be back at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, NV on December 16 and 17.
McPhee will also see her KMF Jewelry line launch the week of November 7. She also has TV appearance planned to promote the line.
