Amazon music is a top destination for holiday listening – since October 1st of this year, holiday music has been requested every hour of every day with Alexa on Amazon Music. Customers can listen to previous Amazon Original holiday songs from artists including Brandi Carlile, Smokey Robinson, Lucinda Williams, Carla Morrison, Jon Batiste, Lee Ann Womack, Us the Duo, Liz Phair, Best Coast, and more – only on Amazon Music.
“The reason we chose ‘Zat You’ is because it is a fun and a little goofy Christmas song,” states Paul Janeway of St. Paul and the Broken Bones. “We knew we could have fun with it. We have always wanted to put happy Christmas songs in a minor key and the horns did that in some of their breaks. We had a blast with it.”
To hear the new slate of holiday releases and many more festive tracks, Amazon Music listeners can simply ask, “Alexa, play the ‘Christmas Present’ playlist” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled device. In addition to the new holiday songs launching today, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Original songs and numerous albums featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres including Al Green, Sia, Soccer Mommy, Brett Young, Parquet Courts, Jack White, August Greene (Common, Robert Glasper, Kariem Riggins), Snoop Dogg, and more, available to stream and purchase, only on Amazon Music.
