Eric Clapton Announces Details Of Christmas Album

Monday, 20 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Eric Clapton will release his first Christmas album this year.

The blues-tinged 'Happy Xmas' is set to arrive on October 12 and will feature 13 seasonal classics such as White Christmas and Silent Night alongside lesser-known Christmas songs and a brand new Clapton track, For Love on Christmas Day. Clapton's rendition of Jingle Bells is also dedicated to the memory Avicii, the DJ who died in April.

Co-produced by Clapton and Simon Climie, the album marks the guitarist's 25th studio album to date and his first release since 2016's 'I Still Do', aside from his 'Life in 12 Bars' documentary soundtrack earlier this summer. It also features hand-drawn cover art from Slowhand, which you can view below along with the record's tracklist.

Clapton will play two shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden on October 6 and 7. Tickets are on sale now.
