Here's another reason that Target is my favorite store. I could literally spend hours traipsing the aisles for "stuff," but now, the super store that sells everything you need is helping its guests get into the swing of the holiday season – for free. The retailer has partnered with a variety of musical artists to create The Christmas Gig, an exclusive album of original holiday tracks available for free download here starting November 28. Select tracks from the collection will also be featured in Target's holiday advertising.
Each of the songs captures a holiday experience as told from the perspective of a contemporary artist. The collection is an eclectic mix of music that includes country, folk, hip-hop, Latin, and pop—from the soulful "Mrs. Claus Ain't Got Nothin' on Me" by Little Jackie to the comforting "Tiny Tree Christmas" by Guster to an unforgettable Latin song "Super Mama" by The Pinker Tones.
"A lot of our favorite bands have written great Christmas songs. So when Target asked us to do this project it gave us a good reason to finally write one of our own," said Rob Barbato, bassist and vocalist of Darker My Love.
Tracks on The Christmas Gig album include:
1. "Tiny Tree Christmas" by Guster
2. "Toy Jackpot" by Blackalicious
3. "Snow Is Falling" by Darker My Love
4. "Perfect Gift" by Natalie Hemby
5. "10,000 Watts" by Crystal Antlers
6. "You'll Never Find My Christmas" by Bishop Allen
7. "Get Down for the Holidays" by Jenny O.
8. "Mrs. Claus Ain't Got Nothin' On Me" by Little Jackie
9. "Electronic Santa" by Bret McKenzie
10. "Got Something for You" by Best Coast/Wavves
