|NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 7, 2023) — “King of Christmas” Bing Crosby sets his sights on Valentine’s Day, pulling back Cupid’s bow to deliver a new 20-track album, A Valentine From Bing, out now through Primary Wave via Green Hill/Virgin distribution.
One of the 20th century’s greatest multi-media stars, Crosby was integral in the development of audio recordings, motion pictures, and radio broadcasting — a legacy carried on today through his Estate and Primary Wave, which continue to grow his presence using new technology to reach new audiences.
The perfect soundtrack for the next big rom-com, A Valentine from Bing delivers timeless tunes for any occasion, whether listeners are celebrating Valentine’s Day or just craving some classic crooning. 15 of the album’s 20 tracks have never before been released to DSPs and are now available to stream for the first time.
The Crosby Estate marks the occasion with some bonus love in the form of a music video for “Dream A Little Dream Of Me,” out today, featuring vintage family photos of Bing and his beloved wife Kathryn Crosby.
“Seeing those photos of me and Bing so beautifully put together brings back wonderful memories of a very special time,” says Kathryn. “He’s still my Valentine.”
SiriusXM will run a limited time “Valentine’s Day Special” episode from Feb. 11 – Feb. 25 as a part of “Crosby’s Corner,” Bing’s Weekly show on SXM’s 40’s Junction Channel (CH71). The special will premiere on CH 71 on Sat. 2/11 5pm ET, with encores 2/12 8pm ET, and Valentine’s Day 2/14 at Noon ET.
