Here’s what I’ve heard so far…
Pat Benatar is planning a Christmas album for this year. She mentioned this last summer, and hopes to finish it this year after her summer tour. She says she’s planning some classics and some originals, including her 9/11 charity single “Christmas In America”.
Meat Loaf has also indicated that he has a Christmas release on the way. His is to be called “Hot Holidays”, and he teased it on the radio this past December with a Children’s Hospital performance including “Silent Night”, “Run Rudolph Run” and “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”.
Grammy-nominated Judy Pancoast has a new set on the way, a follow-up to her phenomenal “House On Christmas Street” album. We were treated to “Mrs. Claus” from Judy last year, an exclusive that will be featured on the new album.
There are no definite dates for any of these, so it’s all just a best guess of what’s to come. Hopefully, there will be some real news soon! Really looking forward to this coming season!
May you always believe in Santa Claus!
