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 Black Friday, November 25th. (CD on December 2nd) The single, Jingle Bell Rock, is out 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 labor of love for him.”
