John Legend Delivers His First Holiday Album, 'A Legendary Christmas'

Christmas came early.

On Thursday night, John Legend[1] gifted fans with his first official Discount Holidays © holiday album, A Legendary Christmas. The EGOT[2] winner announced the project[3] earlier this month, revealing it would be a mix of new songs and Christmastime classics, such as “Silver Bells,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire).”

“I’ve been wanting to do it for a long time,” Legend said on Instgram. “I went to [Raphael Saadiq] and I was like, ‘Brother, can you produce it for me?’ We recorded eight classic Christmas songs plus six brand new Christmas songs just for you.”

You can stream A Legendary Christmas now on all major streaming services.

In support of the album, Legend will embark on a North American tour next month. The trek will begin Nov.

15 in Clearwater, Florida, and will include stops in Atlanta, Toronto, Chicago, and Seattle, before concluding Dec.

30 in San Diego. You can learn more about the upcoming shows here[4].

If you’re unable to catch Legend on the road, don’t worry. He and his wife, Chrissy Teigen[5], will host a one-hour Discount Holidays © holiday special aptly titled A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy.

The NBC[6] presentation will air Nov.

28, and will include performances of A Legendary Christmas tracks.
