Fall may have only just begun, but the holidays will be here before you know it. And exciting news from John Legend has already put us in the holiday spirit. It’s time to swap out your Pumpkin Spice Latte for a glass of eggnog, because Legend is releasing a Christmas album.
Complex reported today, October 1st, that Legend is working on his first-ever holiday album, titled A Legendary Christmas. It will hit shelves on October 26th, just in time to make your holiday season holly-jolly. Raphael Saadiq executive-produced the album, which will feature guest musicians Stevie Wonder (on harmonica) and Esperanza Spalding.
The tracklist for A Legendary Christmas is full of old favorites like “What Christmas Means To Me,” “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire),” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” But it also contains six original songs.
The recent EGOT winner treated his followers to a taste of A Legendary Christmas in a video on Twitter. He even teased a photoshoot for the album featuring Chrissy Teigen and their daughter, Luna.
Legend revealed that A Legendary Christmas will be available for presale starting tomorrow, October 2nd.
If news of Legend’s new album isn’t enough to fill you with Christmas joy, he’s also going on a Christmas tour. He’ll celebrate the album’s release by stopping in 25 cities between November 15th and December 30th. According to Billboard, tickets for the tour will go on sale this Friday, October 5th.
We’re ready to skip straight to October 26th—or even Christmas Day.
Halloween might not even be here yet, but we already know that this Christmas is going to be legendary. We’re looking forward to playing A Legendary Christmas on repeat.
