“This Is Christmas” is from forthcoming holiday collection
Multi-platinum, four-time GRAMMY-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls have released “This Is Christmas,” the debut single from their forthcoming record It’s Christmas All Over, out October 30th via Warner Records. The first of two original songs set to be featured on the album, “This Is Christmas” is a timeless ballad that encapsulates the warmth and spirit of classic Christmas music.
Pre-orders for It’s Christmas All Over are available beginning now, as well as exclusive merch offers including a red vinyl LP featuring the bonus song “I’ve Got Your Love To Keep Me Warm,” a Goo Goo Dolls Crosley record player and additional limited edition items that are perfect for the holidays.
Recorded during lockdown this year and produced by frontman John Rzeznik alongside the band’s frequent collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jimmy McGorman, the album will feature a diverse collection of songs including cover renditions of iconic holiday tracks such as “Let It Snow” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” as well as several rarities and a jazz-infused medley finale.
“This album we dedicate to everyone, everywhere who still believes in hope,” says John. “God knows we need a lot of hope this year. From the deepest part of our hearts, happy holidays from all of us to all of you.”
It’s Christmas All Over comes on the heels of the deluxe edition release of the band’s acclaimed 12th studio record Miracle Pill, a special release boasting the trio of never-before-heard tracks “Just A Man”, “The Right Track” and “Tonight, Together.” Goo Goo Dolls are currently in the studio working on another album of new material and will also be hitting the road for an expansive North American tour in summer of 2021. Kicking off on July 22, 2021 in Boise, ID at Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater, the nationwide tour will visit numerous amphitheaters throughout the US and Canada such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
