With a little under three months until Christmas Day and the holiday season fast approaching, GRAMMY® Award Winning musician, producer, author as well as founding member of hard rock bands Alter Bridge, Creed and TremontiMark Tremonti is releasing the first song from his upcoming holiday album, Christmas Classics New & Old. The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year is now available via all streaming partners and a holiday themed visualizer can be seen below.

Christmas Classics New & Old is Mark’s interpretation of nine holiday classics and one original penned song from the acclaimed songwriter himself. After the success of his interpretation of songs Frank Sinatra made famous on his album Tremonti Sings SinatraMark decided to partner up with the orchestra from that album to work on the holiday album. From the opening horns of The Most Wonderful Time of the Year to the slow fade of the Donny Hathaway classic This Christmas, Mark Tremonti showcases the music that was the bedrock of his childhood holidays. Mark’s interpretations of songs like Jingle Bells, The First Noel and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas find their place among the many great versions that preceded them. O Holy Night is one of Mark’s personal favorites and finds new life in the inspired arrangement by producer Carey Deadman. Mark also took the time to create his own holiday composition called Christmas MorningChristmas Classics New & Old will sit alongside the most-cherished holiday albums and continues to showcase the musical diversity inside Mark Tremonti. The album is scheduled for release worldwide on October 27th and is now available for pre-order here:

  1. Worked retail for 16 years, screw all things involving Christmas music lol Had to listen to that crap non stop twelve hours a day for a month straight every year, and no matter what kind of spin you try to put on it, it’s still Christmas music and it still sounds the same. Pass…

  2. A little to much vibrato for me on this song . My favorite Christmas album is Scott Weilands The most wonderful time of year. Some songs he puts his own spin on it and others he sings traditionally, its really cool I think.
