Today, platinum-certified critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist G. Love uncovers his first-ever holiday album, Coming Home For Christmas—available now via Brushfire/Republic Records. Check out the full tracklisting below. Get it HERE.
The record boasts ten original Christmas anthems penned by G. Love earlier this year. Forever inspired by everlasting and eternal holiday memories from his childhood, he holed up in Orleans, Massachusetts for six days in November and wrote one song per day. Within two days, he tracked the entire album alongside producer Jon Evans at Brickhill Studios with Jon handling upright bass and Mathias Bossi on drums. The resulting body of work captures the season’s spirit with a twist of the artist’s classic bounce, rustic harmonica, vivid lyrics, and lithe, lively acoustic guitars.
About the album, he says, “We’ve always had a strong tradition of caroling and sharing songs on Christmas. My Uncle Bob and I used to lead the family through all of the traditional carols as well as rock ‘n’ roll hits like ‘Summertime Blues’ and ‘Steamroller Blues’. After Uncle Bob passed, my brother-in-law Juan and I have continued the tradition. There was one of those Christmases back in the day when I got the flu or something and missed the family gathering, so I was home alone and wrote a couple of Christmas carols. ‘Christmas Blues’ and ‘Christmas Cookies’. It was then that I decided I would like to complete a full album of homegrown Christmas carols.”
The first single “Christmas Change” paints a different picture of the Christmas spirit in action! G. Love comments, “Much of the holidays are about giving and coming together. ‘Christmas Change’ is about what I feel should be the true essence of Christmas—sharing, giving, and coming together in peace and love.”
