Two holiday-themed Nat King Cole classics get video treatment

“O Tannenbaum” & “Caroling, Caroling” receive clips

Capitol Records/UMe has released two holiday-themed visualizers for Nat King Cole’s sentimental classics “O Tannenbaum” and “Caroling, Caroling.” Perfectly complementing his effervescent swing and moonlit balladry, the visualizers for both songs bolster the seasonal cheer with glowing hearths and animated snowy landscapes, helping add a boost of festivity.

In addition to the first two volumes of the From the Capitol Vault series, a collection of rare and unreleased songs, Capitol/UMe has also released A Sentimental Christmas with Nat King Cole and Friends: Cole Classics Re-imagined. Taking its lead from “Unforgettable,” the 1991 Grammy Award-winning virtual duet with his daughter Natalie Cole, the holiday album weaves Cole’s distinctive and beautifully restored vocals with new arrangements and contemporary artists, creating unique duets of holiday classics.

An icon from the bygone swing era and Jazz age, these holiday songs are a great way to revisit and enjoy the Cole tracks that continually permeate our culture. When it comes to American geniuses like him, digging a little deeper now and again is always an excellent idea.
