Cabin 24Ingrid Michaelson is welcoming the holiday season early with a new song and the announcement that she’s releasing a Christmas album.
“Looks Like a Cold, Cold Winter” is the lead single from Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs for the Season, due out October 26. The 12-song disc was recorded with a 35-piece symphony orchestra and features original songs as well as classics like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “White Christmas” and “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”
The album also features Ingrid duetting with Christina Perri, Grace VanderWaal, Broadway star Leslie Odom Jr. and actor and singer Will Chase, who is Ingrid’s boyfriend.
“I love everything about this time of year,” says Ingrid. “Christmas was a big deal at my house. We would have a huge party every Christmas Eve filled with family and friends. My dad would play carols and everyone would eat, sing and dance.”
Ingrid continues, “This time of year may mean something different now than it did as a child but it’s become even more special, especially as I’ve experienced loss and heartbreak.” Ingrid’s mother passed away during the holiday in 2014 and that inspired one of the songs on the album, “Happy Happy Christmas.”
“I want people to listen to this record and feel warm and fuzzy,” Ingrid adds. “I think the world needs that right now.”
Ingrid will promote the new album with a tour featuring The Ingrid Michaelson Trio, consisting of Ingrid and vocalists Allie Moss and Hannah Winkler. The trek starts November 26 in Portland, OR and wraps up December 17 in New York City. Along the way, it’ll hit 14 cities, including a show in Denver that’ll see the trio accompanied live by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets go on sale September 21. Visit IngridMichaelson.com for ticket info, as well as special holiday merchandise.
