Billy Idol is showing his warm and fuzzy side with the upcoming release of a remixed and remastered version of his Christmas album, Happy Holidays, on vinyl and streaming platforms on Nov. 5.
Happy Holidays, (via Dark Horse Records) was originally released in 2006. The album features Idol performing a wide variety of Christmas classics as well as the new original bonus track, “On Christmas Day,” which features Steve Stevens on guitar.
“Before our 2006 European tour, I recorded a number of seasonal songs,” Idol said. “A tree-trimming, fireside, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day intimate album was the result. Most probably essential at Christmas, is that the music is in the spirit. Knowing that family, friends and children might be listening, I wanted a selection that would please all, while still exploring the awe and mystery that is Christmas.”
Produced by Idol and Brian Tichy, the new release of Happy Holidays has been remixed and remastered by Paul Hicks, known for his work remixing classic records from The Beatles, George Harrison, John Lennon and The Rolling Stones.
Happy Holidays has also been packaged with new artwork and is available for purchase on black vinyl, CD, digital and on limited edition white vinyl. Fans can pre-order Happy Holidays HERE.
Most recently, Idol released The Roadside EP.
