Here is a blog Joey posted about the album:
I've always known I would record a Christmas album. These wonderful standards have a warm special place in my heart. I have enjoyed singing them on so many snowy walks through my childhood hometown of Boston and they have soothed my homesickness out in Hollywood during the holidays. I hope these renditions make you feel at home as well.
I am a blessed man- evidenced by the wonderful and talented people I get to create music with. They came to the rescue once again (as I decided to do this album in early October). But I had great faith that it would be something special. It was thrilling to make and frankly a thrill to listen to. I got to sing a song with one of my good friends and mentors, Jordan Knight. And had some fun with the powerhouse that is Mario Cantone. And finally, a song with a singer with whom I sang my first ever song on stage when I was 6 years old- my sister Carol. So special. I want to thank all the blessed artists that made this album come to life. Special thanks to Kevin Cofield who was there to help lay the foundation and Brent Paschke, who lent his Midas touch. And last but not least, ma' dude, Rob Lewis. You are so thoroughly talented with such an open heart. You give me great confidence knowing I have your support. Your talent and touch and heart is all over this record. Thank you, buddy.
And thanks to YOU. For all you have given me. I am so lucky to be able to make music and know that there is someone out there that wants to hear it. I hope you get that same warm glow from these songs that I got on those wonderful wintery walks in Boston.
Pre-orders start Nov. 7th.
