It’s the holiday season, soon — kind of — so it’s time for all the holiday albums to come out. On Friday, pop/rock icon Bryan Adams added to his catalog with a five-song Christmas EP.
It features “Joe and Mary,” an original song from Adams, as well as a new cover of “Must Be Santa” (which rose in fame with a Bob Dylan cover in years’ past), plus three other standards that Adams has released in the past.
Stream the EP below:
Said Adams of the EP:
“I’m excited to be releasing this Christmas EP. It was fun to record some new tracks and make a video for “Joe and Mary.” I can’t wait for everyone to hear them, alongside some of my classic Christmas songs.”
The video for “Joe and Mary” is said to be coming soon.
The release of this EP from Bryan Adams comes a week after he turned up on a new holiday song from English pop/rock star Robbie Williams.
Williams’ new The Christmas Present album is out Nov. 22, and he teamed up with Adams for a cover of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” which you can hear below:
And don’t forget that back in October, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford unleashed his heavy metal holiday record, Celestial, which packs as much fury and thunder as a typical Priest record — but with a bit more holiday spirit thrown in.
