Harriet Scott, Magic Radio Breakfast show presenter, said: “Cher and Christmas is such a perfect pairing that I can’t believe this is her first festive album – why has this not happened before?! It already has the makings of some classic Christmas tracks that are bound to be part of Magic’s 100% Christmas playlist for years to come and it’s going to be my choice of background music when the Christmas tree goes up in our household this year!”
Greatest Hits Radio’s Ken Bruce said: “Sometimes I feel like I’ve had a long career in the music industry and then I remember Cher. As a singer whose iconic songs have resonated over numerous decades, from I Got You Babe in the Sixties to Believe in the Nineties, she’s been an absolute trailblazer for female singers and artists across the globe. This is her 27th album and she’s showing no signs of stopping – thank goodness because the music world would be a much duller place without Cher in it – at Christmas or any other time of the year.”
Cher fans can count a very merry, very bright and very rock and roll holiday season this year, following the recent release of her new album ‘Christmas’ on Warner Records. Christmas – Cher’s first album in five years – includes 13 songs: several holiday classics and four originals. On the record, she is joined by a host of her musical besties including Darlene Love, Stevie Wonder, Michael Bublé, Cyndi Lauper and Tyga.
Recorded primarily in LA and London, Christmas was produced by longtime collaborator Mark Taylor (‘Believe’). Songs include beloved superstar duet classics ‘What Christmas Means To Me’ with Stevie Wonder and ‘Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)’ with Darlene Love (Darlene first recorded the song with Phil Spector and a l7-year-old Cher, who sung backing vocals,) in addition to a haunting version of ‘Home’, written and sung with Michael Bublé, and lead track ‘DJ Play A Christmas Song’.
This month, Cher celebrated the 25th anniversary of her multi-platinum, Grammy-winning ‘Believe’ with the release of Believe 25th Anniversary (Deluxe Edition) on Warner Records.
