Billboard – Mike Love Announces Christmas Album, ‘Reason for the Season,’ The Beach Boys Unveil US Holiday Tour

9/20/2018 by Rania Aniftos

Mike Love of The Beach Boys performs in concert during the Festival Jardins de Pedralbes on June 20, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

The Beach Boys’ lead singer Mike Love is getting into the Christmas spirit this year, announcing his new collection of holiday songs, Reason For The Season, out October 26.

The album will feature a 12-track mix of original holiday songs and Christmas classics, including “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” and “Little St. Nick,” which the Beach Boys recorded back in 1964. Hanson even hops on a song, the jubilant tune “Finally It’s Christmas.”

“Music is something that always brought my family together, especially around Christmastime,” Love said of the forthcoming record. “What is so special about this collection of songs is that they both harken back to the wonder of childhood and family, but also feel very relevant and exciting for a new season of listening. It’s a such a joy to create this music with my actual family and my family of collaborators, Sam, Steve, Michael Lloyd, Scott, and Hanson. We’re looking forward to being part of the soundtrack of many holiday seasons to come.”
