This year Cher gives us the gift of the perfectly joyful Holiday album, Christmas, a festive spectacle that only needs a one word name, just like its creator. Guests include Stevie Wonder, Michael Bublé, Cyndi Lauper, and more.
Sharing is always an important part of the holiday season, and now so is Cher-ing, and you can now enjoy it with Cher and some of her best friends. In a career that spans decades which have seen her reign as a global megastar, Cher has finally given fans the ultimate holiday present - her first-ever Christmas album. The culmination of a long-cherished (pun intended) plan that she initially unveiled in 2018, Cher's foray into the world of Christmas classics and new hits is a musical celebration that showcases the enduring talent of the Goddess of Pop. The singer's announcement of a Christmas album in 2018 left fans eagerly anticipating a festive musical treat, but the project remained elusive until July 2023 when Cher not only confirmed its production but also hinted at the songs she was already crafting for the Holiday album.
After tantalizing fans with the official artwork in September and a teaser trailer shortly after, Cher's full Holiday album is now available on ruby red color vinyl as well as CD, delivering a mix of incredible new tracks and beloved holiday classics. Stevie Wonder joins her on a soulful rendition of "What Christmas Means To Me," infusing the classic with a fresh, spirited energy. The incomparable Darlene Love lends her vocals to "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)," creating a timeless duet that captures the essence of holiday longing. The festive journey continues as Cher and Tyga take the listener on a "Drop Top Sleigh Ride" before spreading holiday cheer with Cyndi Lauper on "Put A Little Holiday in Your Heart." The magic crescendos with the arrival of Michael Bublé, who teams up with Cher on "Home," bringing warmth and familiarity to the holiday season.
Cher, recognized not only for her distinctive contralto singing voice but also for her trailblazing impact on female autonomy and self-actualization in the entertainment industry, is a true icon. Her continuous reinvention across various facets of entertainment has earned her the title of the Goddess of Pop, and her first Christmas album stands as a testament to her enduring creativity. As we embark on our sonic sleigh ride through Cher's winter wonderland, we’re treated not only to a collection of festive tunes but also to the unmistakable imprint of a legendary artist who, after decades in the spotlight, still knows how to surprise us.
