    B-52s Singer Fred Schneider to Release a Christmas Album - "Destination…Christmas!" will include 11 originals!

    Legendary (and flamboyant) vocalist Fred Schneider of The B-52s will show his holiday cheer this October. The singer, who has signed to Fanatic Records, will release Destination… Christmas! on October 26 and it is a collection of 11 original holiday songs by his band The Superions. I love that Feddie chose to create originals instead of just covering the standards. With lyrics and vocals by Schneider and joined by Noah Brodie (keyboards and electronic drums) and Dan Marshall (programming), the album is destined to become a holiday classic for tuneful toddlers, snarky teens, and cool Moms and Dads everywhere. Oh yes it will be! Who needs "White Christmas" when you've got "Fruitcake?"

    Want to experience Xmas in August? Then go and listen to a sampler of the songs on Destination… Christmas! at and get yourself in the holiday mood a few months. Start making your list, check it twice…

    Destination... Christmas! defines the modern Christmas classic with a traditional twist. "It's hard to say who our musical influences for this project were, because we don't want to get sued," adds Fred. Frankly, the response The Superions have received from playing this record for friends has been hysterical laughter. It's a very radio-friendly, party-friendly album; even Noah's grandmother likes it! With an endorsement from Noah's gramma, you know it has to be good!
