Together at Christmas has been released today, ahead of the pair’s return to the stage in Les Miserables the Staged Concert from the 5th December.
Returning in time for Christmas, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe’s new festive themed album is released today, with a tour to follow next year.
Featuring classic Christmas songs such as ‘It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, the pair are also joined on the album by Gregory Porter to perform ‘The Christmas Song’. The album will also feature a new original song ‘My Christmas Will Be Better Than Yours’ .
Talking about the album the pair said:
Michael: “Me and Alfie, together at Christmas, I can’t think of anything better! In these strange times, we wanted to create an album of songs that we like to listen to at Christmas, plus a few surprises along the way, including an original song! Hopefully our fans will love listening to this for many years to come. This year it’s certainly going to be a Christmas we’ll never forget. Can’t wait to see you all on tour in 2021.”
Alfie: “Keeping the Christmas spirit alive seems more important than ever this year. We wanted to create a festive album that brings joy, love and happiness. Spreading the Christmas cheer is something we all need a little extra of during these challenging times, so however people are going to be able to spend their holiday season, we’ll be right here ‘ Back Together At Christmas’ with our fans who we are incredibly grateful for and can’t wait to see in person when we’re back for a brand new tour in 2021.”
Together at Christmas follows on from the pair’s three duet albums, their debut ‘Together’, which became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot, ‘Together Again’ which brought the pair yet another No.1 album in 2017, and ‘Back Together’ which landed them the No.2 spot in the Official Albums Chart.
The release of the album comes as the pair are also about to return to the stage in Les Miserables the Staged Concert which returns for a special Christmas run at the Sondheim Theatre from the 5th December.
