David Foster and Katharine McPhee have released a second single off their highly anticipated Christmas album, Christmas Songs. “Blue Christmas” comes 2 weeks after the release of “Jingle Bell Rock.” “Christmas Songs,” will unwrap digitally on Black Friday, November 25th. (CD on December 2nd ) This is the first time the two have recorded together in 17 years.
Says McPhee of the song, “ I told David I wanted to record Blue Christmas because it was always a song I played during the Holidays when I would think about my future special someone and little did I know, it would be David, the man I’ve known as a colleague and friend for over 17 years.” Foster joins in, “ Elvis always had a knack for picking great songs. It makes sense that he would pick Blue Christmas. It’s a sad song, but somehow there is a Christmas joy in it. That’s the Magic of blue Christmas.”
