Eric Clapton To Release First Christmas Album

As I have mentioned before I am a pretty big fan of that guitar player they call Slowhand. Some people say he's God, others simply refer to him as Eric presumably. As for me I just call his name into Alexa about three times a day. Long story short he's got a new album coming out titled Happy Xmas, which as you may have guessed from the mysterious title, is a holiday album. This will be the legend's first official foray into the field.

Having yet had a chance to listen to the album, I can only assume how I will use it with the kids. I'd venture it will be made a fun game to include everyone's favorite version of a certain song on a playlist, including a talk after each rendition explaining what we all liked and didn't like about that version. I'm guessing this is my choice for "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".

Happy Xmas tracklist:

  1. White Christmas
  2. Away In A Manger (Once In Royal David’s City)
  3. For Love On Christmas Day
  4. Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday
  5. Christmas Tears
  6. Home For The Holidays
  7. Jingle Bells (In Memory Of Avicii)
  8. Christmas In My Hometown
  9. It’s Christmas
  10. Sentimental Moments
  11. Lonesome Christmas
  12. Silent Night
  13. Merry Christmas Baby
  14. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Sounds good to me. You can preorder the album before its October 12th release date over at Amazon.
