Lea Michele Announces Festive LP ‘Christmas In The City’
We’re still in September, but things are already starting to get a little festive. Lea Michele gets the ball rolling with her first seasonal offering, Christmas In The City, which arrives on October 25 (pre-order here). The album was inspired by the 33-year-old’s memories of growing up in New York City and contains a selection of standards including “Silent Night” and “Silver Bells.” There’s also a reunion with Glee alum Darren Criss on “White Christmas” as well as collaborations with Jonathon Groff and Cynthia Erivo.
“This album is something I’ve wanted to do for such a long time,” Lea reveals. “Christmas is my favorite holiday and it has always been such a special time with my family. I always go back home and spend Christmas in New York, so when I think of the holidays I think of the city. This album is really a celebration of that magic and spirit of my hometown. I am so excited to share the songs I grew up with and I hope it brings listeners a lot of joy this season!” See the full tracklist below and listen to the multi-hyphenate’s rendition of “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” at the bottom of the post.
