  Scott Weiland

   The Most Wonderful Time of the Year


The Most Wonderful Time of the Year


Two-time Grammy winner Scott Weiland finds inspiration from the iconic songs and singers of Christmases past, putting his signature baritone on some of his favorite holiday classics for The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

The inception of The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year began two years ago when Weiland first performed 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,' which is included on this album, on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. The singer says Frank Sinatra's legendary 1957 recording of the song, which featured an orchestra conducted by Gordon Jenkins, inspired his take on this sentimental favorite.

Similarly, the album is filled with lush orchestrations punctuated by horns and sweetened with strings, which were arranged by Michael Birnbryer and Jessica Catron respectively. Weiland leads the musicians through timeless holiday standards made famous by the likes of Nat King Cole ('The Christmas Song'), Bing Crosby ('White Christmas' and 'I'll Be Home For Christmas'), Perry Como ('Winter Wonderland') and Andy Williams ('The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.') The album also includes the singer's own original holiday song, 'Happy Christmas And Many More.' The album was produced by Weiland and his longtime collaborator Doug Grean.
