Chris Isaak Set To Celebrate The Season with Release of
Everybody Knows It’s Christmas October 14
Album Features Isaak’s Iconic Vocals on Holiday Classics
With Debut of Original “Almost Christmas” Track
Nashville, Tenn. (September 16, 2022) – Chris Isaak, known for his smoldering vocals, will release Everybody Knows It’s Christmas (Sun Records/Virgin UMG) on October 14th. The album will feature an original track “Almost Christmas,” (pre-order here: https://SunRecords.lnk.to/AlmostChristmas) available everywhere on September 16th.
Everybody Knows It’s Christmas is Isaak’s second career Christmas album since his chart-topping 2004 Christmas on Warner Bros. Records. The album will feature 13 tracks of originals and covers, all paying tribute to the iconic Sun Records’ aesthetic.
“The holidays are such a special time for me and the pandemic left us all so isolated. I felt like a holiday album was a great opportunity to bring people together this year. I had so much fun making this album and designing the cover,” said Isaak. “It was a joy to work with Dave Cobb and we worked in his iconic RCA studio where John Prine had placed a year-round Christmas tree to keep the holidays alive. I loved that idea so I’m going to keep that spirit alive.”
The album will be supported by in-store vinyl signings and a tour, all to be announced in the coming weeks.
