33-year-old former ‘Glee’ star and crazy girl LEA MICHELE is planning to release a Christmas album titled ‘Christmas in the CITY!’
Michele shared the news on Instagram, writing alongside a tracklist and artwork for the record: “#ChristmasInTheCity coming soon❣️ Can’t wait to get into the holiday spirit with you guys.?” Michele says to PEOPLE Magazine about the record: “It was always my dream to make a Christmas record. Christmas is so special to me. It’s such an important time of year for me and my family that I have so many incredible memories from. I just got married, and it’s a very happy time in my life with my family right now. So making this album and releasing it at this time in my life just made so much sense. Every single song that I picked on this record, these are my most favorite Christmas songs. These are the songs that I always listen to on Christmas. The first song that I said, ‘This has to be on my record’ was ‘Silver Bells.’ ‘Silver Bells’ was my favorite Christmas song, because I love the lyrics, ‘It’s Christmas time in the city.’ That really became the jumping off point for this album, Christmas in The City, because I grew up in New York, and it’s such a beautiful time of year.”
The tracklist for ‘Christmas in the City,’ set for release on October 23, includes Michele’s cover of classics like ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,’ ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,’ ‘O Holy Night,’ and ‘Silent Night!’ Take a look at Lea’s official announcement below and let us know: DO YOU THINK IT’S CRAZY THAT LEA MICHELE IS ALREADY PLANNING FOR CHRISTMAS?
