TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2017 /CNW/ - Multi-platinum, JUNO Award-winning vocal supergroup The Tenors are gearing up for the international release of their fifth studio album CHRISTMAS TOGETHER, out on October 13 through Universal Music Canada (UMC), the country's leading music company, and Decca Records/Verve Label Group in the United States. Bringing the spirit of Christmas to their fans and to complement this release, The Tenors will embark on a 16-city North American tour beginning November 18 in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, September 15 at 10 A.M. Visit tenorsmusic.com for details.
CHRISTMAS TOGETHER is a 10-track album that captures the joy and magic of the season combining a mix of holiday classics, contemporary favourites and original songs. Highlights include soulful interpretations of traditional carols "I'll Be Home For Christmas," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Little Drummer Boy," and a powerful a cappella rendition of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" featuring JUNO Award winner Johnny Reid. The Tenors' songwriting is featured in their #1 Christmas hit "When We Are Together" and a new single "Santa's Wish" inspired by and written around the classic jingle "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing" (full track list below).
Praised by Billboard Magazine "…the star of the show is the Tenors' voices and tasteful arrangements, which flow liquid-smooth from tag-team lead exchanges to rich, choral harmonies," The Tenors, comprised of Victor Micallef, Clifton Murray and Fraser Walters, not only lend their powerful voices to each track, they also write, arrange, produce and play instruments on the album.
"The three of us have been performing at Christmastime since we were kids – from church choirs to community concerts, carolling around the neighbourhood or belting out songs in our living room with our families around the Christmas tree. We wanted to relive those magical childhood memories and bring our fans along for this nostalgic journey," said The Tenors.
Collaborating with The Tenors on CHRISTMAS TOGETHER are Grammy-Award winning producer Keith Thomas (Blake Shelton, Amy Grant, Gladys Knight), renowned producer Bob Ezrin (Kiss, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper) and Grammy Award and Oscar-winning orchestrator, Jorge Calandrelli (Tony Bennett, Michael Bublé, Plácido Domingo).
CHRISTMAS TOGETHER is the sophomore Christmas album from The Tenors. Their first Christmas album The Perfect Gift, released in 2009, is certified triple-platinum.
