Having amassed a phenomenal 16 million sales and 4 billion streams, Michael Bublé’s evergreen ‘Christmas’ album is already the biggest selling festive album of the 21st century and an essential part of the celebrations. Michael now marks its 10th anniversary by releasing the album’s lavish new Super 10th Anniversary Deluxe Limited Edition Box Set. A dream gift for fans, the box set includes a wealth of extra items as well as a 7-track bonus CD which features songs personally selected by Michael. The box set is available HERE.
The album is especially popular in the UK. It became the Christmas #1 shortly after its release in 2011 and has returned to the Top 10 every year since – most recently again returning to #1 at the start of 2021. ‘Christmas’ has now spent a total of 44 weeks in the Top 10 and has been certified 10 x Platinum in recognition of over 3 million sales.
The box set includes a 7-track bonus CD which features songs personally selected by Michael. It includes two new recordings: ‘Christmas Sweater’, which was co-written by Michael and Matthew Vaughn, and a new studio version of the seasonal favourite ‘Let It Snow!’, which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios with the BBC Big Band Orchestra. Other songs include ‘The More You Give (The More You’ll Have)’ and a duet with Rod Stewart on ‘Winter Wonderland’.
The box set also includes:
– A 48-page hardbound book which includes a personal new letter from Michael to his fans.
– An individually numbered 12 x 12 lithograph.
– An exclusive green vinyl version of the original album.
– ‘The Making of Christmas’ DVD – a full behind-the-scenes and in the studio compilation of special moments filmed during the recording of the album with frequent commentary from Michael.
– An exclusive unique Christmas ornament, plus six sheets of wrapping paper and six Christmas cards.
To coincide with the release of the box set, Michael also shares a visualiser for the brand new single ‘Christmas Sweater’.
‘Christmas Sweater’ is set to reach a huge audience when it’s featured in the new film ‘Silent Night’, which hits UK and US cinemas on December 3rd. While the rest of the world faces impending doom, in true British fashion a group of old friends reunite to celebrate Christmas in the comfort of an idyllic country home. Burdened with the inconvenience of mankind’s imminent destruction, they adopt a stiff upper lip, crack open another bottle of prosecco and continue with their festivities. But no amount of stoicism can replace the courage needed for their last night on earth.
‘Silent Night,’ a production of Maven Pictures and MARV, is the debut from director/writer Camille Griffin and was produced by Matthew Vaughn, Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler. The all-star cast includes Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Roman Griffin Davis, Annabelle Wallis, Lily-Rose Depp, Ṣọpé Dìrísù, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Rufus Jones and Lucy Punch.
