Gamine singer Annie Lennox has signed a long-term deal with Universal Music Group and will release her new album, A Christmas Cornucopia, on November 22 through Island Records UK and through Decca Records in the U.S. and the rest of the world. The album features Lennox's unique and personal interpretations of some of her favorite Christmas carols as well as a new composition entitled "Universal Child." Go Annie! Spread that holiday cheer with your gorgeous and haunting pipes. I am anxious to hear which holiday tunes Lennox tackles.
"I'm absolutely delighted to be working with Island Records on my upcoming recording," stated Lennox. "This album is something I've wanted to do for many years. It's a true labour of love, and I feel very fortunate to be in partnership with such a cutting edge team, especially when I'm at a stage in my creativity when I want to diversify, and pursue my passion in my own individual way. I've never been part of a 'mold,' and Island are really supportive and appreciative of where I'm coming from. I want to make timeless music that people will love in many years to come... and I'd like to think that A Christmas Cornucopia is going to be of those recordings."
Will you be drinking spiced tea and spiked eggnog and eating cookies shaped like snowmen while listening to A Christmas Cornucopia?
