20 years after the release of Snowed In, the famous 1990s all-brother pop trio known as Hanson will be releasing their second holiday album with a 12-track LP titled Finally It’s Christmas. Announced earlier this week, the holiday album will arrive on Oct. 27 via 3CG Records/S-Curve Records and will be accompanied by more North American tour dates shortly thereafter.
According to the announcement on the band’s website, Finally It’s Christmas is set to include four new original tracks in addition to eight of their own modernized versions of wintertime classics. The reimagined classics will include Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas,” Stevie Wonder’s “Someday At Christmas,” Aretha Franklin’s “Winter Wonderland” and a new arrangement of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time.”
The six newly added shows are being promoted as “special holiday concerts,” and will take place around Thanksgiving in Toronto and New York City before they close out their year with three gigs in early December in Chicago and Los Angeles.
The final six shows of 2017 will close out what will be a very busy fall and winter for Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson. The famous brothers, who became huge names in popular music starting back in 1997, toured Europe throughout early June and started out on a big North American 25th Anniversary Tour earlier this week on Sept. 12 in Dallas. They’re set to play 36 shows across the U.S. and Canada, in addition to the new holiday shows before they can head home for their own celebrations. With a holiday album coming out in a little over a month, one can only assume that their packed fall schedule just got even busier once it comes time to promote the new LP.
Tickets to select shows on their previously announced fall tour are on sale now. Pre-sale tickets for select dates on their newly added holiday run will be starting next week on Sept. 20 and can be purchased by clicking here.
