Susan Boyle to Release "The Gift" on November 9

Susan Boyle's second full-length The Gift is set for release November 9 on SYCO/Columbia Records. The Gift will be a seasonal collection of holiday songs and inspirational pop covers that showcase Su Bo's gorgeous voice.
A cover of "Perfect Day," the Lou Reed song that Boyle unsuccessfully tried to sing on America's Got Talent earlier this month, will be the album's first single. Touche! I guess Reed really wasn't the roadblock to Boyle performing the song on TV and it really was a licensing issue!
Christmas classics like "The First Noel," "O Holy Night" and "Away In A Manger" will appear on The Gift, as well re-workings of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over," will populate the disc. Boyle will duet with Amber Stassi, the winner of her "Susan's Search" online talent contest, on "Do You Hear What I Hear?"
I am psyched to hear Su Bo tackle Crowded House.
Are you planning to pick up The Gift?
