November 4, 2014
Nashville, TN—B.J. THOMAS, one of the most distinctive vocalists in American pop music, will be celebrating this holiday season with the release of six new recordings of Christmas classics. The Limited Edition EP, titled O HOLY NIGHT, will be released on November 18 on Wrinkled Records.
The legendary singer, a five-time Grammy and two-time Dove Award winner who has sold more than 70 million records and is ranked in Billboard’s Top 50 most played artists over the past 50 years, invites longtime fans and newcomers to celebrate the holiday season with his favorite classic Christmas songs. Says Thomas, “These are the first new Christmas tracks that I have recorded in many years. They are tried and true classics that my family and I have always enjoyed during the Christmas season year after year. I hope my fans enjoy them as much as I have. This is my gift to them.”
Produced by Mark Prentice, a hit songwriter and prolific studio musician in Pop, Country and Americana, who also produced the GRAMMY award winning Fairfield Four album, I COULDN’T HEAR NOBODY PRAY, recorded the EP with Thomas early August 2014, in Nashville, Tenn. The track listing for O HOLY NIGHT is as follows: The First Noel, O Holy Night, Silent Night, What Child Is This?, It Came Upon A MidnightClear and Go Tell It On The Mountain.
Thomas’ Oscar winning recording of “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2014. The song’s appearance in “Spider-Man 2” in 2004, underscored the iconic singer’s continued place as an identifiable cultural touchstone. An incredible half a century in music and some five decades since since his first gold selling hit on Scepter Records, Thomas continues to perform 60-80 shows annually throughout the U.S. and internationally–everywhere from Hong Kong to Brazil.
In 2013, he released his highly acclaimed acoustic reimagined recordings of his iconic hits, THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS featuring duets with Lyle Lovett, Vince Gill, Keb Mo, Richard Marx, Steve Tyrell and more.
